    A bittersweet film with the recognizable lazy atmosphere of holidays as a teenager. I was impressed with how well thought out and concise this movie is: it doesn't have a shot or a line of dialogue too many. Very well acted too.

    If a film has you grinning and humming David Bowie's Modern Love for hours after watching it, that's a good sign. Also, I cried.

    ★★½ Watched 22 May, 2013

    The true story itself is awesome, of course. And watching six half-naked Vikings for 2 hours is no punishment either. But the film never manages to make the story its own. All expected sea journey related hick-ups quicky follow each other (sea sickness! sharks! mutiny! man overboard! storm!): as if they're being ticked off a list. Not one of these makes an actual emotional impact on the viewer. At no point in the film did I find myself really connecting with the characters, or caring whether they would make it or not. They do, by the way. Oops, spoiler alert.
