Movie Info

A young Polish captain is bribed by a Chinese ship owner to scuttle his first command, a rusting cargo ship in an insurance scam. When his mutinous crew abandon ship, the captain is left alone on board, helpless, anchored in a bay. That night while waiting anxiously on deck, he finds a naked body floating in the sea below, tangled up in the ship's rope ladder. Pulling the ladder, the captain discovers a Chinese woman in distress. She climbs on board, saying only "Hide me". Dawn comes a few hours later and so does a search party, looking for a murderer.

After a promising start, the story starts to drift between romance, maritime adventure and rite-of-passage tale.

Cloud Atlas star Zhu Zhu is mesmerising as the stowaway, Li, especially as she is cleverly filmed frequently naked.

his adaptation of Joseph Conrad's 1909 short story ambitiously twists the premise to add a bit of sexual tension, although the plot can't quite sustain itself right to the end.

Fudakowski largely jettisons the idea of the interloper as the captain's more assertive double, aiming instead for simmering sexual tension, but Laskey and Zhu's fatal lack of chemistry sinks his attempt to turn the story into a slow-burning romance.

Secret Sharer offers an intense, elegantly crafted tale of love and death on the China Seas loosely inspired by the Joseph Conrad classic.

Dramatically, alas, it remains rather flat.
