I don’t think I’ve ever seen Michael Kitchen as boyishly playful and cheerful as he is at the beginning of the Norwegian film, Dykket (1989), in which he plays deep sea diver, Bricks. He even wants to raise dolphins after his final dive. Somewhat infeasible maybe, but how cute is that? Unfortunately, things soon turn deadly serious for Bricks and his fellow divers, Gunnar and Rolf, when the solely profit-minded oil company that employs them pressures them to do a dive that goes terribly wrong.

Some of the scenes in this movie appear to have been filmed on location in rough seas.  Unless it’s movie magic, how did the actors not get seasick?  (My question has since been answered by the article in By the Dart describing MK as an avid sailor who obviously has his sea legs.)
