Movie Info

The events that led Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley to write her horror masterpiece Frankenstein provide the basis of this haunting, romantic drama. The story opens aboard a beat up schooner as it carefully makes its way through a massive broken ice pack near the North Pole. There Shelley writes her fantastic tale and reminisces about the events of the previous summer when she was courted by the poetic Percy Byshe Shelley. They elope and go to Switzerland where they become friends with dashing Lord Byron and his companion Dr. Polidori. Shelley's sister Claire accompanies them and gets romantically entangled with Byron. The group subsequently spends some idyllic almost hedonistic weeks at Byron's villa. Over the next few years, strange, tragic and troubling events occur and whenever they do, Shelley sees her monster lurking in the shadows.more

Audience Reviews for Rowing with the Wind (Remando al viento)

Rowing with the Wind aka Remando al viento, is a Spanish film . Its about the life of Mary Shelly who wrote Frankenstein. And just the fact that a female wrote Frankenstein should tell you that this is a [pretty weird movie. Matter of fact I consider it the Movie from Hell when it comes to understanding it. The later portion of the movie I got, but some of the crazy stuff in the beginning, like a small boat drifting in and out of Ice Caps, Point less. If you watch it and can explain it to me I would be thankful. If you give it more then 3 stars then I suggest you seek counseling for your well being. Maybe in Spain it would make more sense. 2 stars and rescue me from the pits of hell.

Music, scenery, girls getting out of bathtubs, and a gaggle of feminine men... what could go wrong? Mmmmm... maybe the lack of a narrative pace? The total absence of transitions between events? I give it a couple points for the giraffe, and I do thank the filmmakers and talent for their efforts, but in the end this film was just badly assembled.
