Finding self
26 December 2016 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

Director: Stefan Butzmühlen and Writers: Jan Künemund and Stefan Butzmühlen have created a very quiet and calm story of a young boy, Marek, leaving his country home to follow his dream of being a sailor and traveling the seas. Marek finds employment on a huge container ship and he meets Jean, a boy about Mareks age but much more experienced at life and they become friends. Jean and Marek share more than just working on the ship, they also share their beds. Jean and Marek seem to be compatible but Marek eventually expects more in their relationship than Jean is willing to give.

The film's format is quiet and contemplative. There is minimal dialog and long scenes of the vastness of the sea. I believe this is symbolic of the many emotional changes and thoughts Marek must face. He has gone from his family's country fields to rolling ocean water and facing a new life alone. Plus Marek's thin friendship with Jean causes him to feel as if he is lost at sea. The ship docks at Martinique and here the boys friendship takes another turn.

Beautifully photographed and edited this movie is for those that want to experience more emotion in film than action.
