Movie Info

A young man suffering from prolonged ennui thinks he's found a solution to the sadness he sees enveloping so many in this offbeat independent comedy. Vincent (Magnus Aronson) is a sad young man with a weakness for dance music who lives in the Scottish Highlands. Vincent imagines that many of the people around him must share his lack of enthusiasm for the quiet life in the hills, and comes up with a plan to establish the area's first mobile discotheque, where he'll spin classic dance tracks

This beautifully daffy road-movie musical is as inspired, whimsical, and commercially unconcerned as its protagonist.

This film-school grad project does rep an arresting debut for British-based German helmer Laurin Federlein.

Build a Ship, Sail to Sadness is a movie every bit as cumbersome and trying as its title.

Despite the apparent ugliness and sloppiness of the piece, there's a real gem of inspiration at the core, and the character of Vincent is wonderful.
