5 June 2010 | HumanoidOfFlesh
| Dark and unsettling seaside drama.
"The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea" by Lewis Carlino deals with the romance between lonely widow and a merchant marine officer.Her son is a troubled teenager who spends his free time with a group of sadistic boys.The kids sentence a cat to death for being old and fat;they drug it and dissect it alive.Somber drama with gorgeous photography of British coast and some graphic scenes of sex and sadism.Frank Perry made similar film in 1969 titled "Last Summer",a grim story where bored wealthy kids at a seaside island abuse first a total stranger and then rape one of their own.If you liked "Last Summer" you can't miss "The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea".It's well-acted and unforgettable drama with seriously dark streak.8 sailors out of 10.
