    Caution - this may contain spoilers if you haven't seen the film!

    I've not seen his for years, so any of the following maybe wrong.

    British film.

    Black and white.


    Something to do with the relationship between a sailor and a boy/boys who may be his son (estranged?).

    They ultimately end upon a boat - possibly a trawler - caught in a storm.

    The mast collapses, trapping the sailor and threatening to sink the boat - in an act of self-sacrifice the trapped sailor instructs the crew to cut the mast away with an axe, thus saving all on-board, but with the mast dragging him under to his death.
