After the Storm (2001)
USA / English
"A tale of human nature rising to the surface.
"When a luxury yacht goes down in a violent storm the race is on to salvage the bounty at any cost, causing two couples to commit the ultimate betrayal.
Slow paced, just watchable yarn
Very slow "thriller" about a sea scavenger (Bratt) who along with his
seemingly naive girlfriend finds the wreck of a luxury yacht and raids
it for the very sort after contents.
Unfortunately he is tracked down by another islands-man (Assante) and
his "femme fatale" wife who demand a share of the profits, and then its
all a question of trust - or lack of it.
Based on a story by Ernest Hemmingway, there really doesn't seem to be
enough to keep you interested for the best part of an hour and forty
mins, all in all though its worth a look but certainly not one to watch
over and over and the "twist" at the end is predictable, yet doesn't
really add up.
Bratt is quite good and Avital is cute - while the stunning scenery is
most definitely a plus point.
