He’s not had much good fortune of late and has gone almost three months without a major catch while others are catching one or even two large marlins every week. Many of the locals make fun of him and some say he’s too old now to be fishing but he still loves what he does and is encouraged by a young boy who loves him and has faith in him. On this day he hooks the fish of a lifetime, a marlin that is larger than his skiff. As it slowly pulls him out to sea, the old man reminisces about his past, his successes and the high points of his life. When he does finally manage to land the fish he has to fight off sharks who are feeding on it as he tries to return to his Cuban village.
Plot: Santiago is an aging, down-on-his-luck, Cuban fisherman who, after catching nothing for nearly 3 months, hooks a huge Marlin and struggles to land it far out in the Gulf Stream.

Reflexion about the meaning of life.
It could easily have been a Jean De La Fontaine’s tale, about the purpose of life, the meaning of achievement, the importance to succeed or not. You may argue, discuss concerning the way of filming and story telling, about the performance of Spence Tracy – whom I consider excellent here – but this story is really compelling for those who like thinking about a movie when getting out of the theater. And I guess that’s the most important in a film. Good or not. Anyone already know the topic, so useless to come back to it. There is no John Sturge’s trade mark here, but after all, has he ever had a real one? Hmmm….yes, maybe a bit, but the scheme of an individual fighting for something unaittable is something that many directors have already told about. One of the most interesting scheme for me.
