Storyline

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 Polly_Kat

Caught by surprise...
18 January 2019 | by paul2471See all my reviews

Caught by surprise is an appropriate heading for this review, as this movie certainly achieved that for me...

Found this movie difficult to walk away from, themes simple and common, yet the challenge so many of us face kept my attention from start to finish.

François Cluzet's portrayal of Yann Kermadec certainly rang true for myself.

Such frustration certainly many have felt at other times, yet here the message clearer, that first we need avoid knee-jerk, so allow time so for us to consider our position, how we should wish to be treated, then work through it...

Samy Seghir as Mano Ixa certainly my sympathy was for, reminder of why refugees need both be fully and properly considered for their reasons resulting in their actions. (Such positions governments often to timid to actually take considering basic human rights.)

Certainly worth viewing and considering for others who may experience so need understand the dillemma's faced by so many as events unfold..
