Storyline

On 30 September 1659, the aristocratic British Robinson Crusoe's ship sinks and he miraculously survives on a deserted island somewhere in South America. He retrieves a dog, Rex, and cat, Sam, from the shipwreck together with some supplies, weapons, clothes and tools and builds a shelter. He soon learns how to survive by cooking, farming, harvesting the crops. Then the loneliness begins to haunt him, especially after the loss of Rex. When he sees a group of cannibals in the island, tension and fear become part of his life. Later he saves the life of a savage that was going to be eaten by the cannibals; he names him Friday and they become friends. When Robinson Crusoe sees Caucasians on the island, he finds that Captain Oberzo was the victim of a mutiny and he helps him to retrieve his ship. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Robinson Crusoe: How wrong I had been. Friday was as loyal a friend as any man could want. With his many different skills he enriched my life on the island. We had found that two working together could do much more than working separately.

The story of the hero of Defoe, Robinson Crusoe
26 October 2001 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent film, not only in its acting, but also in color and photography. I always remember it for the best acting of Viernes (Friday) and also Crusoe. The film follows well the plot given by Dafoe in his wonderful book. If somebody never read the book, my advice is to see this excellent film.
