This film is just mesmerizing! The ocean-roaming stories of sailors, featuring Sandy, a former prostitute who reflects on her maritime lovers. The moments of lonely and transactional physical connection are set against a haunting visual backdrop of vast ports, listing ships, oppressive drinking holes and waiting women. The usually Greek and South American men alternate their lives on-board that are both exciting and mundane with visits to the women in bars. A hypnotic soundtrack that merges with the soliloquies of Sandy and the sailors creates a poetic and meditative beauty, which is nothing short of sensational. Highy recommended! 9 points!
