Storyline

Marine Life revolves around the choatic family life of June, a middle-aged lounge singer and mother. June is trying to hold on to her career, her beauty, her children and her most recent love, Robert - a tender but slightly confused younger man. To escape the world, June makes frequent trips through the car wash, singing her heart out. June's twelve year old daughter Adele - an amazingly mature adolescent surrounded by amazingly adolescent adults - tries to make sense of the emotional upheaval surrounding her. Within her weird extended family, Adele learns about loyalty, betrayal, forgiveness and what to expect from love. Written by arvi

gritty romantic/family comedy of dysfunctional but warm family
16 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Very European style film(as Canadian cinema tends to be)--emphasis on story and atmosphere, no car chases or messages or good/evil moral duality required. Just gritty reality of real people full of real love and forgiveness despite anger at inevitable flaws. Life is hard so grab real love where you can--and the main characters are full of real love. Reminiscent of Roseanne and other warm but real and not sweet tales of modern times, such as Cybill's other work--e.g. her eponymous TV series. Left me wanting a sequel, the characters were so engaging.Can't find it on Amazon-- would like a copy if anyone knows how to find copies of obscure CBC productions. Title refers to their life in a port city where their jobs and interests revolve around the shipping industry and the main protagonists have a love of whales.
