The Old Man and the Sea is the 1958 movie adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's novel. An old Cuban fisherman (Spencer Tracy) sets out to make his living and stay alive. The fishing industry has not been good, and he is desperate to catch something that he can sell in the market. His young companion, a boy (Felipe Pazos), travels with him and learns the trade. On this trip, the man hooks a fish of epic size, one that will be a trophy that will provide for him for a long time. However, fins slice through the surface of the water, and the old man and the boy realize they are surrounded by predators on a flimsy raft. The man fights valiantly to save his catch from the dangers of the sea, but it looks as though his prize may be lost. The journey is a story of human courage against unbeatable odds and captures the existential anxieties of the century that witnessed the first World Wars.moreless
