This is a guy's movie based around "sailors," so the language is quite colorful. It does have its funny and serious moments. The movie was a little slow, but it's all about the coming of age for a young man on a ship.

"Re the DVD itself, not the film:
* Pan and scan only
* No close captioning
* Subtitles in Spanish only
Great movie, not the best DVD."

"You enter this closed world aboard an almost phantom ship like secret corners of life composed of solitude, memory, inner yearnings and the desire to be remembered even if only for having imparted the trick of removing fingerprints from stainless steel.
The offerings of some part of themselves to take to another life of which they know nothing to someone who listened, who said yes, or I understand, the romantized stories about a missing crew member of this back and forth across the lake of people embedded in lives they unendlingly explain in the gestures that compose their lives is haunting, touching and often pure poetry.
The actors are breath-taking and the directing so beautifully done as to be almost invisible.
I love this film."

"This is a guys movie about men teaching a grad college student about men's lives. They do it by association and without lecturing or posturing. Tough language in places, but it is how a lot of guys talk. Same idea as Duvall and Caine teaching the kid in "Second Hand Lions", except the 'student' was younger there. I enjoyed this movie a lot. Good acting and quite subtle for all the cursing. By the way, Jack Wallace, who initiates the funny Steven Seagal discussion, played Seagal's uncle in "Above the Law.""
