Storyline

Kesse is a third generation fisherman living in the small and windblown town of Hirtshals, in Northern Jutland. As a result of new fishery policies and the global financial crisis, the smaller fishermen are slowly succumbing to the pressure of competing with larger fishing enterprises. Kesse is struggling to survive, desperately holding on to the only way of life he knows. But desperate times require desperate measures and so, due to increasing financial pressure, Kesse is forced to find more notorious and alternative ways of making ends meet. This in turn, leads him to meet his polar opposite, the female marine biologist Gerd. Written by Film Maker ApS

Honest story
8 September 2014 | by milton-freddySee all my reviews

Some years ago a danish filmmaker made an acclaimed movie about the harsh reality in the agricultural industry. Now a similar venture has been produced about equally troublesome conditions within todays fishing business. The actors are not well known, but that only contributes to the believability of the project. In truth there has not been made many attempts to cover that subject matter, and the structure of the drama could be valid for most fishing industry along the shores of Europe, where bigger boats are now needed to make fishing profitable. There is a symbolic meaning to the title of the film 'Ocean Sunfish' where a clumsy big fish is swimming lonely around in the local fish tank exposition. The main character feels the same way as a creature not really fitting in with the current development of his branch. To keep from bankruptcy he indulges in some illegal activity which eventually backfires. The film is a valid and honest tribute to the living conditions in the provinces, where the changes make it difficult to continue to live and keep up the old traditions.
