Storyline

The free-lancer photographer Sara hires the divers Iván and Edgar and they head to the open sea in a small motor boat with the teenager Drui, 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 black 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

Terror on the high seas
2 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to catch this film at its premiere midnight showing in Sitges, Spain. I don't speak fluent Spanish, but I was still able to keep up with the story and characters-- without subtitles. The film opens with a great visual image of a woman in distress, and while the story involving how she got into that situation doesn't quite live up to the initial shock, there are enough twists and turns to keep up interest. I thought the acting was fairly good across the board, especially with the crew of the ship. The directing could have handled a little help, but shaky camera setups are hip and I'll leave that alone. Basically it boils down to: I liked it, I recommend it.
