Flounders in the Waters of Amateurish Filmmaking
30 January 2020 | by jfrentzen-942-204211See all my reviews

This low-budget fishing drama was made in 1967 along the bleak Atlantic coast of South Africa. Gert van den Bergh portrays a fishing captain who refuses to acknowledge the existence of his younger son (Antony Thomas) after the boy's brother is accidentally killed at sea. In an attempt to prove himself, the young man joins the crew of one of his father's trawlers. A saccharine love story is then woven into the plot, as Anthony and the skipper's daughter fall in love. The film tries to explain the motivation of its characters, but becomes grounded in the shallows of pretentious, amateurish movie making. Released in the U.S. in 1969.
