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.

  • This loose and wrong-headed Joseph Conrad adaptation is a paragon of the bland literary adaptation.

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

  • A handsomely made romantic drama which is ultimately sunk by its own clichés.

  • 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.
