Most of all I'm impressed by the girl in the main role. It is something mysterious about her, she is hiding her feelings and loneliness. After being cool and calm it almost came as a shock when she suddenly went wild and crazy! I also admire the actor playing Iris' uncle. Magnificent to have an actor who actually knows how to sail, I was almost scared when they were so close to the big white ship in the heavy rain. I liked when the barrels of whisky exploded. My only negative remarks on the film are that it could have had some more action scenes. But as a thrilling coming of age-story I think it is stunning and visually perfect.
