Wonderful excution of a classic story and 8 hrs long!
1 December 2011 | by warren149See all my reviews

Original title is Das Rätsel der Sandbank this was some sort of German TV series that has been issued as a 4 DVD movie.This is a perfect movie for a fan of the story. Unfortunately it's only available in German , no translation or subtitles. I sent a copy to my father he Immediately sat down for 8 hrs and watched the whole story even though he does not speak German! Drove my mother nuts but its such fun to watch what has been in your head for years. They did a really good job with making a period piece and trying to get the details right. The Dulcibella 'yacht' used is not as accurate as in the English movie but it's just the right sort of boat for the waters. The story is not a modern 'Block buster' so the movie is not either its a wonderful study of English doggedness and ingenuity. If you enjoy traditional sailing , a mystery and outdoor action all wrapped up in an accurate period piece this is it. You will need to watch in an unlocked all region DVD player and I had to buy it from Amazon Germany but its well worth it . warren
