Three Crowns of the Sailor (1982)

My Rating

Movie Info

In this classically surreal fantasy, a sailor, known for telling tales, sees a student killing his teacher and decides to spin a few yarns for him. He tells the boy of his many adventures in exotic South American ports where he visited opium dens and stayed in cathouses. In such dark, dreamlike places, the sailor meets many strange, mystical characters. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Three Crowns of the Sailor

A sailor promises a student who has murdered his teacher a chance to sail away on a ship, but first he tells the story of his bizarre adventures sailing the seas on the cursed boat. Literary surrealism, a mixture of nonsense and mind games, with a sense of humor as dry and black as gunpowder.

a marvelous ghost story in the style of magical realism, the film plays like an opium dream, hallucinatory and disorienting. perhaps a bit long and some of the acting seems stiff but the astonishingly imaginative visuals more than compensate. inspired by coleridge's rime of the ancient mariner, an immortal tale of the sea

Short tales of ordinary madness or in our case,uncompromising anarchy.The interaction between two radicals (a student versus an experienced sailor) is but the premise of a psychological duel beyond the dreamland and into the web de mort.What we're witnessing is a journey to the unknown where the finale is more than a catharsis!
