The Spirit of the Waters
A 98' tv drama directed in 1996 by David Delrieux
On the small island of Enez, off the Brittany coast, two brothers, Antoine and Eric, argue over their father's fishing boat, "The Spirit of the Waters".
Then right in the middle of the fishing crisis, the EC orders a reduction in catches. This means that The Spirit of the Waters, one so the oldest trawlers on the island, risks being scrapped. To save the boat, Antoine, against his brother's will, rallies support from the island to block the EEC order. A wave of solidarity ends in a vote to blockade, to try and resist the law.
But the situation rapidly deteriorates...
