Storyline

Amy, her husband James and their baby Sarah travel to Mexico to sail in the yacht of their reckless friend Dan with their common friends Zach and Lauren and celebrate the thirtieth birthday of Zach. They are introduced to Dan's girlfriend Michelle and they drink and recall moments of their past while navigating. Miles away from the shore, Michelle suggest to stop the yacht and swim in the calm water. Amy stays in the boat since she has a childhood trauma with ocean and Dan stays with her. Later, the irresponsible Dan pushes Amy overboard, falling with her in a prank. Once in the water, the group realizes that Dan forgot to put the embarkation ladder and the freeboard makes impossible to climb to the main deck of the yacht. With the baby alone in the boat and stranded in the open sea, they panic and their desperation lead them to a tragic fight for survival. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The character and motivations of "Dan" were based off of childhood struggles of director Hans Horn and the fact that he was generally seen taking alone time in public swimming pools. This is the basis of the pivotal scenes in the movie where Dan is seen wading merely feet from his comrades, as Horn was known to frequently do. See more »

Goofs

At 1hr 2min 30 seconds into the film, a female character is floating face-up in the water. In the context of the story, she is supposed to be entirely nude. However, the camera inadvertently shows the skin-colored modesty patch that the actress is using to cover her right nipple. See more »

Loved It ......
25 February 2007 | by fiendsSee all my reviews

I seem to be in a bit of a minority here, but I loved 'Open Water", thought it was one of the best low budget films to date, and made me fear the ocean all over again ...(thanks "Jaws"!!). So I was pretty excited when I saw this on the shelf, had no qualms shelling out some dosh, and I am so pleased that I did ... Possibly even better than the first, talented (if fairly unknown) actors, and just a great premise ..... I can see how something like this might happen,a stupid mistake that can have very real consequences, and while I was sitting comfortably on my chair in my lounge, thinking "you should try this or try that", (which they mostly did anyway), I'm sure thinking logically whilst bobbing about in the very cold ocean is not so easy ..... I loved it, made me squirm, had to look away at times, and really felt for all the characters and their different ways of dealing (or not) with the situation ..... A great film.
