Storyline

In the Somalia coast, the veteran divers Engel, Mitchell, Hurst and the rookie Jones are assigned to repair an oil pipeline on the bottom of the sea by the Vaxxilon representative Karsen. They are advised that a storm is coming, but the Diving Support Vessel Lorimer lowers the bell with the team. They succeed to weld the pipeline but the storm comes and the vessel sinks, killing the whole crew. Short of the oxygen, the divers try to communicate with the surface and the leader Mitchell keeps the hope that they will be saved. But will the oil company send another vessel to rescue them?

Quotes

Engel: A man goes to sea for many reasons. Perhaps to sense its beauty and stare at the infinite horizon that offers no questions, seeks no answers. Perhaps to stand in awe of its power, savagery, grace. This is all true, but there are also those who go to sea ultimately because they are lost and never want to be found.

Anguishing and Realistic Drama

In the Somalia coast, the veteran divers Engel (Danny Huston), Mitchell (Matthew Goode), Hurst (Jones Alan McKenna) and the rookie Jones (Joe Cole) are assigned to repair an oil pipeline on the bottom of the sea by the Vaxxilon representative Karsen (Ian Pirie). They are advised that a storm is coming, but the Diving Support Vessel Lorimer lowers the bell with the team. They succeed to weld the pipeline but the storm comes and the vessel sinks, killing the whole crew. Short of the oxygen, the divers try to communicate with the surface and the leader Mitchell keeps the hope that they will be saved. But will the oil company send another vessel to rescue them?

"Pressure" is one of the most anguishing and realistic drama about the deep water divers ever made and economical interest of oil companies. The performances are top-notch and the realism of the scenes is impressive. The director Ron Scalpello makes an excellent film that keeps the tension along 91 mm running time. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Sob Pressão" ("Under Pressure")
