Movie Info

Two high level scuba-divers and long-time friends, Don and Dave, broke a world record for depth in the Boesmansgat cave in South Africa. It would take them 15 minutes to reach the bottom, but 12 hours to surface. Having reached the bottom, against all odds, they find a body. They decide to come back and retrieve it. They call the parents, enrol 8 fellow divers, and hire a cameraman to document the dive. The camera will follow them throughout the preparation and the dive, including to the bottom of the cave. Little did they know that on that historic dive, Dave would not be coming back. In this time of over-performance driven by self-promotion and self-filming comes Boesmansgat, a story of loss and mourning where egoism and altruism, hubris and self-control, risk-taking and spirituality all go hand in hand. A cascade of choices and tense paradoxes that lead to a tragedy long foreseen, yet impossible to prevent.

Critic Reviews for Dave Not Coming Back

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (8)

  • The film's core elements are firmly entrenched in the documentary genre. Regardless, few can deny the mourning and mortality on display here aren't the real thing.

  • Into the depths, but not out alive

    January 13, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Another example of a documentary being filled with emotion. But this time in a rather unexpected place.

    December 21, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The real-life stakes serve to send the blood pressure sky-high and, despite knowing how the tale ends, you'll find yourself on the edge of your seat.

    December 1, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [Director Jonah] Malak keeps the pace and the tone of the movie consistently on the passion for deep-water diving, but Dave Not Coming Back is also a cautionary tale of how someone's life can be cruelly taken away during this high-risk activity.

    November 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Comparable to the best adventure films ever made, writer/director Jonah Malak has captured a heart rending story of mankind's desire to go where they have no business going.
