All Is Lost

I tried. I think that you will all agree that I tried: to be true, to be strong, to be kind, to love, to be right. But I wasn’t. And I know you knew this, in each of your ways.

With such a starting statement of All Is Lost, one might expect a clarification, a story… But there’s only a struggle to survive in the middle of the ocean, in the middle of nowhere. The survival of an old man (not quite The Old Man and The Sea) sailing alone in the Indian Ocean, after the impact of his yacht with a container floating adrift. Probably because I was not in the right mood for this kind of movie at the time I was watching it, it appear to be a little monotonous. All Is Lost reminded me, through its topic, by Bernard Moitessier‘s Vagabond of the South Seas (read years ago).

I tried. I think that you will all agree that I tried: to write a few lines, to provide a few links, to make some connections…
