Captures the desperation of a sea rescue and its aftermath
25 December 2017 | by steve-12598See all my reviews

Not a full review, more a reaction ... This documentary captures perfectly the desperation, the helplessness, the commitment and the surreal contrast between tourists enjoying their ouzo at the restaurant tables while volunteers performed CPR or wrapped people in survival blankets. I was on the quayside in Molyvos harbour during the scenes shown between around 16.20 and 18.30 (I even appear briefly!). If authenticity and capturing a mood are important, then this is a truly great documentary.
