while visiting Key West several years ago We also toured Ernest Hemingway home where he lived back in the early 30's with his second wife Pauline. Under the "carriage house" where he did so many of his famous books such as "a farewell to arms" there is his book//gift shop. I brought his book "after the storm" and the guide told us that the story behind the story is what brought Hemingway to Key West in the first place. Seems local legend had it that a Spanish schooner when down during a storm and Hemingway's friend Don Pasos explored it and actually saw thru a porthole bodies floating around and yes, a beautiful woman as well wearing jewelry etc ... , which gave Hemingway the idea to write this novel. As far as the movie goes it does follow the central story but with a few twists thrown in for good measure. The locations of the movie are beautiful but it was not taken in Bahamans as it depicted but Belize. I just wished the movie was longer as there were some side issues that could had been developed a little more ... like how did Malcolm know Stephen Lang for instance or the "real" role of Jill Jacobson ( the governor's wife ) to Arno and Jean-Pierre ? ... Benjamin Bratt was really good wasn't he as Arno? .. he has truly matured since his days as "Lenny's" prop in the TV series "Law & Order" and has become a good actor and I cannot think of anyone but him playing the role of Arno .... good movie ... based upon a very good book ... and filmed in a very pretty setting ... what more could one asked when watching a movie ?
