Storyline

The young pianist Thomas Harvey finds the brig "Hurrying through the Waves". After a brawl, Harvey is abandoned alone in a lifeboat, cut adrift from its moorings. By a miracle, a fair maiden appears in the boat. She reassures him. Anglers salvage Harvey. There is a charming girl among them: Daisy. They tell him the legend of the nocturnal rescuer, Frasie Grand, who rushes through the waves. All sailors in distress have regarded her as a symbol. People have raised a monument to her. By the end of the carnival, Harvey sees yet another crime in progress: the demolition of the Monument to the Hurrying through the Waves. He is the only one to confront the rampaging mob. Harvey once again meets the little sweet Daisy who shares his dream. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

I enjoyed it
3 January 2003 | by blef1248See all my reviews

I read the book as a child, but saw the movie only recently. I liked it very much: excellent scenario, music, acting. The movie does not follow the book exactly, but conveys the same spirit and, in my opinion, is a nice interpretation of the book. Garvey's accent (Bulgarian, I assume) seemed a little unusual to me, but maybe for that role it is good.

This movie is definitely not for people who like Hollywood or any cheap stuff shown on TV nowadays. And, of course, those not fluent in Russian, will miss a lot.
