Sad - Against the Current review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert
30/04/2016

The photography down the Hudson River is great. Slow scenes accompanied by gentle acoustic music almost make you feel as if you are on the entire 150 mile trip, broken up with some quirky shore stops. There is some unpleasantly crude language between Paul & Geoff. [*Beware some spoilers follow*] It gradually becomes clear that Paul is haunted by the past death of his wife and wants to commit suicide at the end of his swim. Although romance rapidly blossoms with Liz who accompanies them on the adventure but he is still determined to die. The film finishes with a depressing scene of him swimming out to sea alone.
