As someone said somewhere before, every man has a dream about the ship. I feel like I can finally understand it after watching this film. It's a story about a man and his dream. Eivind, a stubborn old sailer, tried every way he could to realize his ambitious dream of success, however, end up lonely and miserably on his Jernanger, where his dream begins. He shoots the sun when he wakes up every morning, implying a man's powerlessness facing time and fate. It's also a story about love. Beatrice, stands for the everlasting love in human nature, is always seemingly approachable but hard to achieve. The only thing we could do is admiring and missing it in a distance away. The ending is actually the greatest part of the movie, while Eivind said keep sailing to the north and she'll know that I always love her, reminds me some old faith in love.
