A beautifully filmed melodrama concerning the generation gap clash at it’s worst as a stern, forbidding, grieving fisherman father and his bookish son clash and collide time and again.
The son eventually proves his worth to his father only to have his worst fears realised when his terminally ill girlfriend succumbs to leukaemia, but this tragedy forces him finally into manhood.
Beautiful cinematography by Vincent G. Cox, A.S.C, haunting music by Roy Martin and acting from the cream of South African entertainment all add up to a very memorable viewing experience.
This is also known to be the film which gave Emil Nofal's partner Jans Rautenbach his first chance at directing a film, due to Nofal's terrible sea-sickness.
