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
A strange story about a mysterious ship and its mysterious crew and their mysterious destinations, artfully directed by Ruiz. I appreciated what was going on while also being a bit bored by it. The photography is unusual, especially some of the worm's-eye view stuff. And Jean-Bernard Guillard is a good actor with an intriguing presence. It just didn't wow me... perhaps a better print would have been more engaging. Still, the story is interesting and the narrative has a Resnais quality to it.
