While the picture behind Brian Cox is of the Loch Ness Monster, the location of the film is actually Loch Morar. The monster there is less famous than Nessie and is called Morag. The Loch doesn't connect to the sea so German U Boats couldn't sail in to it but commando troops were trained in that area during World War II. See more »
Miss McMorrow stated to the captain that her man is in the war in the RAF. To Lewis Mowbray she stated that his ship is sunk for a year ago. Looking at the scenery the story take place at he end of spring or begin summer 194. If Lord McMorrow is in the RAF station on a ship the only aircraft carriers sunk in 1941 were the ark royal and the Audacity but only in late 1941, November and December, If he was on one of those ship she already had received message of his missing. The Ark Royal sank in tow to Alexandria so there should be a list of died and survived personal.
The Audicety sank in December 1941 and could not be the ship he war placed on because the event was only 6 or 7 months for the story took place. See more »
I thought this film a delight to watch. It offers much in the way of taking us back to when we were young and believed in The Wizard of Oz with all it's fictional characters. I thought this very well done and quite often asked my wife..."How did they accomplish that?" (I'm 80 and have had a career in electronics and am not senile...yet!) This film takes place in Ireland and in what might well be Loch Ness before WW II when the Army was on constant alert for anything that looked suspicious...even if they had to use their imagination to find things. A young boy of about 10 has become a close friend to the monster and proceeds to protect him/her. A coastal watch group was sent to the area to ward off German submarines, and decided the Water Horse was a submarine and proceeded to attack! I felt the film very clever in design and presentation. I especially thought the ending very delightful...don't miss the last 2 minutes of the film!
