Movie Info

Adapted from an Ernest Hemingway story by Hemingway's longtime friend and associate A. E. Hotchner, After the Storm spent years in development before filming of the movie version began in 2000, several years after Hotchner's death. Set in the Bahamas in 1936, the story concerns a young fisherman on the lam from gangsters, who stumbles upon a fortune in jewels from a yacht sunk in a recent storm. This sudden windfall results in nothing but unhappiness and betrayal for the fisherman -- and for everyone else who embarks upon the treasure hunt that consumes most of the action. When After the Storm failed to secure a theatrical release, it was licensed to the USA network for its first American TV showing. The R-rated video version was released on May 29, 2001.

Audience Reviews for After the Storm


Occasionally, a meddlesome shark pops in to pump up the action, but that doesn't occur often enough, and the meandering pace set by director Guy Ferland is a drawback.

After the Storm (Guy Ferland, 2001) [originally posted 27Mar2001] ...a flood of deliquescence. (zero)

** (out of four) Not bad, but fairly typical adventure story based on the Ernest Hemingway short story. Benjamin Bratt and Armand Assante head out on the water to get away from it all. The stumble along a buried treasure.
