Comments:
Statement of the Jury at the Nordic Film Days in Luebeck 2007:
The fact that this perfectly crafted animated film comes from Norway not only becomes clear in its closing credits: in order to tell the story of the amicable sea rescue ship Elias, the film gives human features to ships and lets the action take place in fantastic images set in the fjords of Norway.The interaction between originality and a characteristic Norwegian background is remarkable.
