Age of Sail: A new animated sailing movie

Recommended Posts

I found this online and was impressed.  Check out this video.

OFFICIAL SELECTION VENICE FILM FESTIVAL 2018
OFFICIAL SELECTION LA FILM FEST 2018

Set on the open ocean in 1900, AGE OF SAIL is the story of William Avery (Ian McShane), an old sailor adrift and alone in the North Atlantic. When Avery reluctantly rescues a teen (Cathy Ang) who has mysteriously fallen overboard, Avery finds redemption and hope in his darkest hours.

Reasonably entertaining for 10 minutes but cliche after cliche and more than a little too pat. But hey, who's to question the Anchorage Film Festival panel?

Incredible! Thanks for sharing!

However, I hate it now because there is no way the old dude heard the question about survivors from the rescuers. He was under the freakin' water. Just outrageous. I feel it is now my duty to slag this film all over the interwebs. (I kid).

Best FP post of the year...Loved this on quite a few levels - a great little story, well told, great characterisation and dialogue with wonderful rendering.....and of course the starring role of....RUM!

Ya, it was pretty, but for the love of whatever why won’t the movie industry fact check with sailors when they do sailboat films... channel cutter getting knocked down? Maybe... the mast breaking as a result? Highly unlikely, but at a stretch, possible... The highly ballasted hull, now relieved of the pressure on the sails and the burden of the rig failing to right itself and instead mysteriously, what... somehow taking on water through the narrow companionway at sufficient quantity and speed to sink her? I mean they went to the trouble to get a bunch of other stuff right that’s often botched...

Anyway, a sweet little story but...

I enjoyed it.  I liked the concept of the only supplies being 12 bottles of rum.

Sounds like a sailors way to go.  Better than shitting the hospital bed.

Having shouted at the screen so often because of cgi animators who by all evidence never ever looked at a sailing ship in motion before, I found this one quite good to watch!

I also noticed the motion was quite realistic. Good to see.

Would have been itonic if the ship from which she fell had been the Titanic. 

Even more 'itonic' if they'd been rescued by the Titanic!
