Tasteless
26 November 2009 | by SydneySi_43See all my reviews

I can understand why this film never saw the light of day in the UK. I lost a friend on the Marchioness and this TV film was terribly made and therefore I think in very poor taste. If anybody wants to see a film that is sensationalist in its approach and also inaccurate in its account of the nights events that does not pay any particular attention to the people who lost their lives on board the boat or who survived the accident, then this IS the film for them. However if you wish to see a film that is tasteful, touching and informative then I suggest you try and see the UK Documentary "The Marchioness: A Survivor's Story". Here you will see just how tragic and painful this event was for all involved.
