Bernard Drew Gannett News Service So with all that going for it, why did it seem so tepid? Perhaps because I am not automatically sympathetic to those hardy souls who climb Everest "because it's there."

Linda M Loved it! Exciting and inspiring story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member :rotten: :rotten: [b][color=yellowgreen]1/2[/color][/b] (out of four) [color=yellowgreen]Beautiful cinematography highlights this rather traditional love story that is as shallow as the ocean is deep.[/color] [color=#9acd32][/color] [color=#9acd32]Joseph Bottoms stars as the real-life teenager who sails around the world in a 23-foot sloop. Alomng the way he picks up and falls for a girl who then travels with him.[/color] [img]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/hstngs2000/Dove1.jpg[/img] [color=#9acd32]The sights are amazing and the performances, especially by Bottoms are very good. I just wished they we are able to get deeper into the minds of the characters.[/color] Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I found this movie hard to get into at first. I was probably having issues with the "70's style" acting and music, but, got over it and ended up really LOVING this movie. Looking forward to watching it again and reading the book. Cinematography wise, I don't think this is Sven Nykvist best work, but it is DEFINITELY his work and he is one of the greatest masters.
