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

what can i say, a b-movie

...and an incredibly bad one, as well. i've never read hemingway, so i don't know weather this is faithful or whatever, but i couldn't get on the mood.

benjamin bratt bouncing around as the macho 'hero' is ridiculously poor.

this man shouldn't be allowed to pretend being an actor. you live in denial, benji! armand assante and simone-elise girard do a better job, but there was nothing they could've done to save this miserable excuse for a movie. and, realistically, they are also quite mediocre actors, they just seem fine in this one considering the level of competition.

the director tries to be all clever twisting and turning the events and trying to create a paranoid feel, but hey, when you can't do it, you just can't! the plot in it's childisness and predictability is so stupid it's not even funny. i suggest considering going back to your day job. (i had a hard time not to curse here)

the studio must be happy to see the crew spend all the money having a nice little holiday somewhere in caribia, as the only thing i saw money spent on was the camera filter that made the movie look more expensive than it actually was. the jazzy music is annoying and unfitting, aand naturally the dialogue is on a 'me tarzan, you jane'-level.

if you, after wathing 'after the storm' and 'wild things' still say mamet's movies suck i can't help you. you need serious treatment.
