Sarah Victoria Frick,
"Styx" depicts the transformation of a strong woman torn from her contented world during a sailing trip. When she becomes the only person to come to the aid of a group of refugees shipwrecked on the high seas, she is shown the limits of her importance and of the empathy of her cultural milieu. She is left slipping impotently from one nightmare to the next, and by the end she is forced to recognize that there is no way to counter the cruelties of real life. Only chance can save her.Written by
Outstanding film and performance. Only one flaw...
This is an outstanding film and awesome performance by the beautiful Susanne Wolff. The film only has one flaw...many scenes were longer than they should be and some scenes unnecessary and long scenes like the intro with the monkeys, the crash and when she´s aiding the boy, to mention a few.
But still, I would recommend it. I even thought it was based on a real life story which is not far from what is actually happening with refugees escaping their country for a better life.
