En Solitaire: get a glimpse of how exciting sailing could be in the present years
I probably should not have reviewed this title: I enjoyed it but I am a sailor and it's easy to understand that I am not objective: many things that mean so much to me (Cape Horn, the Roaring Forties, Icebergs in Southern Atlantic or just Sailing itself) could be completely meaningless to people who do not sail.
There are two reasons why I'm writing this note: first at present (surprisingly enough) there are no other reviews for this movie; second, its success in France has been so great that I can't believe it could have been due only to hordes of sailors filling the theaters.
It's a beautiful sea movie with a very simple plot, don't expect anything astounding or particularly original: it just shows the feelings that any of you, alone at sea, would have for your fellow men. The film has been made by people who clearly know very well the world of yacht racing and offers you the chance to get a glimpse of what it means today to sail around the world: did you know how fast modern sailboats could run? Enjoy.
