It tells the story of Yann Kermadec whose dreams suddenly come true when he has to replace the DCNS star skipper at the last minute before the start of the Vendée Globe (a round-the-world non-stop single-handed yacht race). After several days of racing, Yann, who is in the lead, has to stop to repair a damaged rudder. This will disrupt his round-the-world journey...Written by
If you have seen the Robert Redford movie with him sailing completely along, do not expect this to be similar. Only thing that is similar is the main actor is as exceptional. But he does use modern technology to stay in contact with the "outer" world (the "real" world, his family and friends or colleagues), which didn't really happen in "All is lost" with Redford.
This is also a competition movie, where our main character is trying to be first in something. But it seems that not his competitors will be his worst adversary, but someone completely different. If you haven't read the summary, I won't reveal to you, of whom I'm talking about. Be surprised, not only by the plethora of dialog, but how the movie develops. It's tension filled from beginning to end and will be fun to watch even for those not in the know about sailing!
