Once upon a time, there was a quiet little village in the French countryside, whose people believed in Tranquilité - Tranquility. If you lived in this village, you understood what was expected of you. You knew your place in the scheme of things. And if you happened to forget, someone would help remind you. In this village, if you saw something you weren't supposed to see, you learned to look the other way. If perchance your hopes had been disappointed, you learned never to ask for more. So through good times and bad, famine and feast, the villagers held fast to their traditions. Until, one winter day, a sly wind blew in from the North

Present day Scotland. A tale is told to a couple of American tourists by a kindly gentleman in a pub. Angus is a lonely boy who pines for his father, who is serving in the Royal Navy during World War II. Angus, along with his sister and mother, live on an estate that has been billeted by soldiers in the Scottish Highlands, near Loch Ness. The troop's commander has an eye for mom, is suspicious about a mysterious handyman, Lewis, who is also a war hero, and an absurd contention that the Highlands are the real frontline in the war against Germany. Angus discovers a mysterious egg that hatches a sea creature of Celtic mythology. The creature befriends Angus and will eventually be known as the Loch Ness Monster. Trying to hide the dinosaur-like creature, nicknamed Crusoe, Angus enlists Lewis to transfer it to the lake, where boy and serpent have extraordinary adventures together until human stupidity threatens Crusoe's existence

Schiffsmeldungen : wie weit muss man gehen, um die Liebe zu finden? by Annie Proulx( Visual )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in German and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine mit atmosphärischer Eindringlichkeit und beiläufigem Humor inszenierte Romanverfilmung, die den im Mittelpunkt stehenden seltsamen Einzelgänger aus der stimmungsvollen Beschreibung der Umwelt heraus anlegt. Die ebenso poetischen wie symbolischen Bilder einer in ewiger Winterlichkeit erstarrten Hemisphäre führen in ein faszinierendes Zwischenreich von Mysterien und Realität, das mehr zu Erklärung der Charaktere beiträgt als die eher unglückliche Besetzung der Hauptrolle mit einem allzu vertrauten Filmstar.
