A ship and a couple of stars

Bjarne Henning-Jensen, Denmark, 1974

84 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films, Family films

Left stranded on a tiny island in the Baltic Sea are four very different people who form a kind of romantic-mystic friendship: an old salt, who cannot find his land legs, a young boy on the run from an unfriendly big city environment, an Eastern European musician who got through the Iron Curtain and a woman champion rower who took the same route. Can these four unite in putting their past behind them?
