Movie Info

Rike--40, a doctor from Europe--embodies a typical Western model of happiness and success. She is educated, confident, determined and committed. We see Rike's everyday life, as an emergency doctor, before she fulfills a long-held dream and sails out to sea alone in her sailing boat. Her goal: Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. But her dream holiday is quickly broken off on the high seas, when, after a storm, she finds herself near a stricken fishing boat. Around a hundred people are about to drown. Rike follows maritime law and radios for help. As her request is going nowhere, she is forced to make a momentous decision.

  • Fischer literalises the turbulence we're now navigating, and asks some stern questions of our moral compasses.

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • It is a nautical yarn about the haves and the have-nots, using the microcosm of the Asa Grey to explore social, economic and political dilemmas that are the neglected responsibility of us all.

    Apr 23, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • "Styx" mixes the inherent danger of man versus nature with man's callous indifference to man, managing to be both eternal and contemporary in its concerns.

  • Wolff is never less than mesmerizing in this role, which demands a performance that is, at times, more physical than emotive.
