I watched this with my wife and 6 year old granddaughter. It is dated but that makes it a bit interesting for a child. We are boaters and my granddaughter immediately picked up on the fact that the children in the film didn't wear life jackets, among other nautical no-nos.
It is a peak back to a simpler time when a kind villager/fisherman invites the children to go out fishing for the day, without telling mom, who is always at home.
Moments such as these will bring warm memories to those who were lucky enough to have experience them in childhood, or had the good fortune to have raised children in this time period.
The poaching of seals is the main source of conflict in this film. The hooligans who are killing seals are depicted as foolhardy, and cold-hearted men, who will stop at nothing to earn "big rewards" for killing animals that are protected.
