Storyline

A freelance photographer, Sara, hires divers, Iván and Edgar, and they head to the open sea in a small motor boat with Drui, a teenager, the pregnant Thais and her husband Victor. When Iván and Edgar dive, Sara sees a man floating adrift and she brings him on board. Soon they realize that the man is dead and the clumsy Victor stumbles and shots the flare in the gasoline tank. The boat explodes and the group tries to swim to the distant coast. Soon they see a cargo ship anchored in the sea and they ask for help. But Sara, Iván and Edgar witness two crewmen stabbing a man and throwing his body overboard. However, they decide to climb the pilot ladder and hide in the ship, expecting to reach a port. When Thais is bitten by a rat, Sara and Victor seek medicine to disinfect her hand, but one crewman sees him. Victor decides to turn himself in to protect the other stowaways. His scheme does not work as planned and the trip has a tragic end. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Better watch your favourite all over again
13 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've seen worse, and I say that because others didn't keep me in my chair to see how much ridiculous will turn yet towards the end...

The beginning is missing loads of things, like, to let us know the characters, nevertheless, that would be a detail, as they don't grow, or we don't get to know them even when the film comes to an end.

This seems to be a mixture between 'Ghost Ship' and any title at random of the very bad films based in Stephen King novels. Most of the character don't hold it, because when you start to like them or dislike them, they change and that's what happens with Ivan and Edgar's characters, they seem to be selfish and isolated, but them they turn into the superheroes of the moment... incredible!!!! Silke, is an actress that was a revelation years ago, fresh, different, interesting even without the pretty face, but after years of no productivity, one would think that she was taken lessons of vocalisation... wrong!!! it's very difficult , even for a Spaniard to understand what she is saying.

Plot is silly, dialogues come like salty water in a river... and question: what's a pregnant woman and a teenager(the one who drives the boat, that doesn't say a word in the whole film), are doing in there?

And trivia: the story happens during the night, but then, out of the blue, is midday!!!! Not at all recommendable, if you estimate your spare time, you better watch that favourite of yours all over again.
