Summary Turning Tide, a thrilling adventure picture set on the open seas, marks the directorial debut of famed cinematographer, Christophe Offenstein (Blood Ties). This big budget production stars Francois Cluzet (Intouchables and Tell No One) as Yann Kermadec, a taciturn Breton who, after his friend Franck (heart-throb Guillaume Canet) breaks a leg, steps in to skipper a high-tech yacht for the Vendee Globe, a strictly solo three month round-the-world yacht race. Early misfortune sees Yann's boat briefly laid up in the Canary Islands, but when he rejoins the race, he discovers he is carrying a teenage stowaway, Mano (Samy Seghir). Realising his long cherished dream of winning the Vendee Globe is imperiled by the presence of the young Mauritian, a furious Yann refuses to speak to the boy. However, slowly his hostility gives way to empathy and an understanding of Mano's predicament. While this stunning film makes a poignant comment on migration, it is the breathtaking action sequences that make it a cinematic experience not to be missed
