The Wide Blue Road is a 1957 Italian film directed by Gillo Pontecorvo and Maleno Malenotti, based on the novel written by Franco Solinas. It tells the story of Squarcio (Yves Montand), a fearless and determined fisherman, living on a small island off the Dalmatian coast of Italy. He is struggling to feed his family, as fish is becoming more scarce in those waters and the local wholesaler is taking advantage of the poor fishermen. While other fellows continue to use nets to earn their living, Squarcio starts going in the open sea to fish illegally using handmade explosives. After losing his boat, he is forced to use the bombs directly off-shore to get his fish, attracting the hatred and disgust of other local fisherman and a new coast guard capitan, who is out to catch him. Desperate to save his family and striving for a better life, he borrows money and sails with his young sons on his new boat far beyond local waters to fish with explosives again, exposing themselves to great danger.moreless
