To get an order for 1,000 yachts from a middle-east sheik, two boat companies have to race 'Göta kanal', a canal through Sweden, east to west. There are no rules in this game and the winner gets the order.
An order for 1,000 yachts for a middle-east sheik is up for grabs. The list of contestants has been narrowed down to two companies: one is a multinational one with good backing and the other is run by visionaries and enthusiasts with their main focus on rowing-boats. Having a hard time to decide between the two the sheik declares a race on the Göta Canal through Sweden, from the capital of Stockholm to the second city of Gothenburg, where the winner gets the order. Pretty soon it becomes obvious that winning does not mean strictly abiding to sea rules and regulations.Written by
This movie is about a boat race on a small river in the mid of Sweden. They are racing for an order of 1000 yachts to a middle-east sheik. The movie has a lot of (at the time) good Swedish actors, I beleive that you have to be from Sweden or Scandinavia to like this one...
It has a bit of classic action here and there but it's kind of a comedy / drama picture. The story plays out in "present day" 1981 and it's a "feel good" movie.
I rate is movie 7/10.
