Review by Sailing Totem!
Behan and Jamie and their kids, Niall, Mairen, and Siobhan of Sailing Totem, took the time to watch our film and write a unique review on their website sailingtotem.com. Below is an excerpt, and we encourage you to read the entire review at SAILFEED, where their blog is syndicated by SAIL Magazine. Read the full review here.
The review begins as such…
One Simple Question: what’s it like to go cruising?
I thought I knew what One Simple Question was about: it was the tale of an environmentally-focused expedition to give witness to global warming, by visiting a southbound iceberg in the north Atlantic. Well, not exactly.
One Simple Question does address environmental issues, but this is the tangential vehicle for the focus of the movie. And the focus of the movie is something that anyone who reads this blog is going to be interested in watching, because what the filmmakers do is give you a fly-on-the-wall look at what it is ACTUALLY LIKE to go cruising, and they nail it. The iceberg? It comes up in the beginning, but not again until something like 2/3 of the way through the movie. It’s interesting, but it’s not the point.
