Visual story-telling at its best
16 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I viewed this movie on TV and in Spanish, and it mattered not.

This is visual movie making at its best, the story being told through

gripping physical encounters and gut-wrenching emotions on an

enchanting island. Crusoe and Friday are fiercely strong

individuals who must learn to cooperate to survive. But this version

of the classic story goes beyond mere physical survival and

focuses on how Crusoe, a slave trader in the 1800s, and Friday, a

Black, overcome their innate prejudices and learn to trust, respect,

and finally to help each other survive against life-threatening odds.

The mythic feel of the film is enhanced by wondrous cinematography and sparkling music. Thanks Aidan Quinn, Ade

Sapara, and Director-cinematographer Celeb Deschanel for a

most delightful movie.
