| Not many pirates, but still a good movie...
If you are expecting a high seas swashbuckling pirate movie then this 1998 version of "Frenchman's Creek" is not the movie for you, nor is it one that romanticizes pirates and piracy. However if you want to see a historical drama where the pirates is a backstory then you should watch this movie.

I haven't read the book nor seen the 1944 version, so I can't compare the 1998 version to previous works.

The story in "Frenchman's Creek" was interesting, although I had initially thought it would have more pirates, given it was released under the title "Pirate's Creek" in Scandinavia for some reason. And the DVD cover also made it appear to be focused on high seas adventure and swashbuckling pirates.

What really worked for the movie was the costumes, props and locations. There was a very historical authenticity to it. And that was awesome, because it adds such a detailed level to the movie.

It should also be said that the acting in the movie, by everyone on the cast list, were doing really good jobs in bringing their characters to life on the screen. A lot of talents that I never have seen before, but I think it is always refreshing to see new faces in movies.

"Frenchman's Creek" is an entertaining movie if you enjoy historical dramas. I was genuinely entertained by the movie.
