Great Quotes and Boats

“I spent months. I had never rowed before, and Martin is someone who has rowed his whole life. Without a doubt, that’s the hardest thing you can attempt to learn in a short period of time.  I got there in the end, and I got quite addicted to it and loved it. I actually kept it up while we were shooting, even when there was no need to. I just really enjoyed working with my coach. There are only a couple of brief moments in the film, but there was no way of faking it. There was absolutely no photo double way of shooting any of that stuff.  It was a pretty lucky thing to do, to go row on the Thames. It was beautiful.

– Eric Bana (1968- ), during an interview for Collider speaking about his Martin Rose character who rows in the film Closed Circuit.
