Storyline

The plot of the film is a story of friendship between a little country boy and an old fisherman. Santiago, a strong and proud man, cannot accept the implacable passage of time, which takes away physical strength. For many weeks, he returned without a catch. Finally, he makes the decision to go for the catch far far into the sea and not return without catch. Only in this way an old fisherman can regain confidence and self-respect.

One Great Story
28 June 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This Hemingway staple has all of the tensions inherent in a life lived. The old man knows that his task is huge, but facing death and failure is better than living in safety. The seamless animation and waves of beautiful sea images take us on the journey. One of the finest examples of short animation to ever be seen.
