I noticed a couple of very negative reviews of "The Boat is Full" and I admit that this movie is rather unique. However, I was very impressed with this film once I had seen it to its' completion. It lacks any sort of action or compelling characterization. I was able to watch "The Boat is Full" sitting way back in my seat and at no time found myself at the edge of it. The setting and dialogue could have easily been transposed successfully into an on-stage production. What makes it so impressive is the glimpse it gives us of the general European apathy to the plight of Jews in Nazi Germany and, specifically, to the plight of refugees. Years ago I read the book "While Six Million Died" which detailed the "problem" of Jewish emigrees in the early and middle years of Hitler's Germany. The basic problem was that nobody wanted them. (The book underscored America's shameless participation in that apathy). There is a centuries-old anti-Semitism in Europe that most Americans don't...
Poorly written drama that depicts mankind as cowardly, cruel and selfish. Of all the characters portrayed only one, a prison guard, showed any concern for the dignity of human life. Hard to follow at times with characters changing from good guys to bad guys and back again. I realize that the film was foreign made but that is no excuse for such mediocrity.
A great movie for our time with lessons for those who care to view the true nature of Man
