Passable little drama.
3 May 2006 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

A couple, Cyril Raymond and Joan Carroll are down on their luck and decide to try and make some money by chartering their last remaining asset, a yacht.

They are approached by Nigel Patrick (who also co-wrote the screenplay his only such endeavor) who wishes to hire the boat to search for treasure.

It seems that when evacuating Belgium when it was being occupied in 1940 he had been entrusted with taking a family's jewels to safekeeping until the war was over.His boat was sunk with the jewels but he was able to get an accurate bearing before escaping.

From then on there are some twists and turns which keep the movie interesting until it's conclusion.

The whole of the movie is filmed on location which adds to the authenticity. The tape I watched ran 65mins.
