"En Solitaire" movie. Anyone seen it?

01 December 2013 - 05:53 AM

Anyone know anything about the movie "En Solitaire"? Should have released in France around early November. Saw them filming at the start of the Vendee Globe last year.

 

imdb says this as the plot

 

It tells the story of Yann Kermadec whose dreams suddenly come true when he has to replace the DCNS star skipper at the last minute before the start of the Vendée Globe (a round-the-world non-stop single-handed yacht race). After several days of racing, Yann, who is in the lead, has to stop to repair a damaged rudder. This will disrupt his round-the-world journey...

 

stars Francois Cluzet as the sailor.

 

Who has seen this? Any reviews or info? Any way to see it in English?

 

edit- I just watched a trailer for the movie here: 

 

I don't speak French, but it there was lots of cool Open 60 footage, people with distressed faces talking on cell phones and an apparent shocking twist where two people ended up on one boat in the vendee globe. now i must see it or know more.
