“All Is Lost”: Survival in Extreme Conditions

“All Is Lost”, directed by J.C. Chandor, premiered at the Cannes Festival in 2013. As for actors – there was only Robert Redford, and of course the fish, and the natural entourage – the waves, the storm, and the vastness of the Indian Ocean. Nevertheless, the main character received the Golden Globe, and the film became iconic for many critics. The plot is outstanding. Even though there are but traces of dialogue in the film, episodes punctuating the story of a fearless sailor crossing the Indian Ocean on a small yacht.
