Can someone in France, Australia, and/or New Zealand comment on how the film is being received there? These countries have a much larger pool of blue water sailors and their take on the film would be interesting. Seeing the film apparently only has a couple of spoken lines, it should be a simple matter to translate.
I don't believe the film will be shown here in Australia till late Feb 2014. I've seen the trailer. I certainly won't be queuing up to watch it. perhaps on a long flight after I've exhausted all other possibilities.
