Acquired Taste
The Red Tent grows on you. The story line intrigues me so that I have watched the movie time after time. The footage is beautiful. My only complaint is that the movie is not available in DVD to watch in wide-screen.

This is not a high action movie. Much line the explorers, the movie is a slow treck. You meet the characters and you learn how play into the story.

Most importantly, you learn about the disaster and the quilt and shame associated with it by the ships captain. At the end, you feel resolution, but as he does.

Worth watching. Certainly, not one of Sean Connery's most commanding roles.

However, the "star" is the air-ship and the beautiful back-ground scenery.
