This flick is a good example of a narrative which seems to launch right into the dramatic question. After all, it opens in medias res with a tallship tossing in a storm and crashing on a rock. In short order, we meet the protagonists, abandoned by the crew to whatever fate awaits them and making haste to get off the ship onto dry ground. Surely the action has begun. Well, yes, but no story is about the action per se.
