This is one of the great movies from the eighties, however unjustly underestimated and forgotten.<br/><br/>Brandauer plays the captain of the lightship that&#39;s constantly anchored at the same place. It&#39;s only purpose is to warn other ships for dangerous waters. Robert Duvall enters the scene with his men and his one ambitions. It is also a generation drama about the relation between the lightships captain and his prodigal son.<br/><br/>A brilliantly hermetical story about the thin line between order and chaos, and about relations between people. An excitement that lies not in action but in the trial of strength and the mostly implicit violence, that sometimes breaks out in uncontrolled outbursts.<br/><br/>It also tells the story about the kind of courage that almost looks like cowardice.<br/><br/>Don&#39;t miss this one!

This is an excellent thriller. Why? Because it is able to create continous tension without big special effects, violence or gun shots. It is a story about several cat and mouse games.

And you will determine what will happen to this lightship. A lightship which only task is to stay at its place. Great tension and still a great movie, with a couple of great 80 and 90 actors.

A fascinating and complex --under the simplicity of its surface-- fable of good against evil and a coming-of-age tale, with excellent performances by Duvall and Brandauer and a superb direction by Polish director Jerzy Skolimowski, here in one of his best films --along with &quot;Moonlighting&quot; and &quot;Deep End&quot;. Simply: an enjoying and rare gem.
