If there is a world capable of providing excitement, it is the world of sailing. Whether you seek the adrenaline rush of a match race or the challenge of the oceans, you can find them aboard a boat. Cinema, the dream factory, could not fail to notice. The heart of seafaring filmography remains the world of piracy: the planetary success of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” saga testifies to this. Even TV has noticed: indeed, Black Sail, a series that takes us back to the golden age of piracy with Captain James Flint and his crew, including a young John Silver, still with both legs, has started on the Sky platform… But the recently concluded film season gave us two fine films set in the ocean: on the one hand in “All is lost.” Robert Redford challenges a storm and a leak in his own boat off Sumatra, on the other hand the French François Cluzet of “In Solitaire” plays a sailor who suddenly crowns a lifelong dream of participating in the Vendée Globe. Isn’t that enough for you? We point you to twenty-four films that for one reason or another have marked the relationship between cinema and sailing… and one that aims to do so next year!
