Storyline

1933. With no one and nothing in his life except a broken pocket watch that belonged to his now deceased father, Arno moved from the US to Bimini, Bahamas a few years ago, and has since eked out a casual but penniless life as beachcomber, he owning a small skiff and a small cabin on the beach around Pirate Caye. He, who knows the waters as good as anyone, is not averse to making money on that knowledge, except doing anything even remotely illegal, which is why he tries to stay clear of Ortega, whose activities are always on the far side of the law. Arno is viewed suspiciously by the men of the area as a "pelican" and thus unreliable, while he, using his natural charm and good looks, is able to strike friendly relationships with most women. He is having an affair with Janine, the neglected wife of Jean-Pierre, a charter boat operator who routinely has flings with the rich socialites who charter his boat. Janine has fallen in love with Arno. When Arno ends their relationship, it is just... Written by Huggo

excellent adaptation of Hemingway

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 ?
