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.
This loose and wrong-headed Joseph Conrad adaptation is a paragon of the bland literary adaptation.
A Vaseline-lenses romance plonked rudely into what looks like an infinitely more interesting and gritty study of Chinese sailors.
As Apocalypse Now and The Duellists prove, Conrad tales have been adapted into fine films down the years. This, though, isn't one of them.
