In a room with no windows on the eastern coast of Africa, a Scotsman, James More, is held captive by jihadist fighters. Thousands of miles away in the Greenland Sea, Danielle Flinders prepares to dive in a submersible to the ocean floor. In their confines they are drawn back to the Christmas of the previous year, where a chance encounter on a beach in France led to an intense and enduring romance.
In the novel, Danielle Flinders is described as a mixed-raced woman. Her father is Australian and her mother is from Martinique, a country where 90% of the population is black. An excerpt from the novel says this about Danielle; "In her complexion and variety of dress and habits and manners there was something of her mother's Creole background". Swedish actress Alicia Vikander was cast for the role. See more »
I've thought about bodies buried at sea. It's not dust to dust, that's for sure. It's water to water.

All the wonderful talented actors where mocked by the boringness of a thin story and weird long scenes that had no soul to them. I am so sorry this movie has failed. It has some of my favorite actors in it and it was just bad directing and a sad music score. The attempt to bind the story, characters and scenes together with water was awkwardly done and Far fetched. I am sure the script must have been good to lure these talented actors to participate. But movies like this can partially kill an actors career. I hope this is not the case. I felt it was utterly a waste of time with unrealistic conversations that felt misplaced. The movie only had a few good scenes. I am very disappointed and I didn't expect anything crazy anyways.
