I saw this movie when I was nine years old and...
10 May 2000 | by ZoneIIISee all my reviews

it was spectacular. It may look dated today, but it was wonderful then. It opened up with scenes in Norway as the crew prepared for the voyage. Then the ship left port and once it unfurled its sails, the curtains pulled to the side for an incredible cinematic experience. The movie followed the actual voyage of a group of young Norwegian cadets as they sailed the world. The soundtrack for this move is beautiful. I would love to see this movie again and, in fact, that's why I searched for this title in the first place. I have never forgotten this movie.
