Though I was living in Paris (i.e., not that far away) when this, i.e., ‘Rose Island‘ happened, I do NOT recall hearing about. But, I was all of 15, wasn’t that interested in news & had other, more pressing things on my mind. When I first saw the Netflix trailer I assumed that it was all made up. Quite the story. Funny etc. Then I realized that it is (nearly) all TRUE! Wow. How amazing. Incredible. I wish the movie provided more information as to how he, i.e., ‘Mr. Rose’, the engineer, built it. Could not have been easy.

Very entertaining. Easy to watch.

As with ‘A Fortunate Man‘ it has to have been dubbed because it was NOT made in English & the leading characters are mainly Italian. The dubbing is top-notch. It fooled me (but, usually that is NOT hard to do).

I definitely recommend this movie. Enjoy.
