Did Chuck Noland, an employee of an American courier company, say goodbye to his beloved Kelly and get on the plane, foresaw that he would soon share the fate of all Robinsons? Of course not. His plans for the next week did not include this type of obstacle. And yet the moment was enough for Chuck's previous life and the plane to collapse into the water. At that moment, a long and difficult path to survival led to his home began - a path through the ocean and inside himself. If it were not for the very good role of Helen Hunt, one could say that "Cast Away - beyond the world" is basically one actor's cinema.

For over three quarters of the movie, Tom Hanks is the master of the screen. And the master should be added.

The physical transformation of Chuck Noland from an obese man into a sunburned, emaciated survivor sets in astonishment (Tom's hard work and the excellent characterization of Daniel C.

Striepeke'a). But this is not what determines the level of acting. A subtle grotesque which, with the help of Hanks' gesture and facial expressions, gives even the most prosaic activities of a survivor. A masterpiece to convey content without words. Living credibility of the character. And finally, Noland's extremely meticulously and emotionally played metamorphosis: from a mobbed businessman, a feral shipwrecked man, to the deep sadness of a man who had experienced a great willpower to convince himself that he had lost everything. Tom Hanks, an actor known for many remarkable roles in such films as "Philadelphia", "Forrest Gump" and "Green Mile", gave another testimony of his impressive talent.

It is hard to resist the impression that the whole story takes place in reality, at your fingertips. The specialists in image and sound have made a medal. Dramatic pictures of Don Burgess repeatedly do not spare the viewer of almost physical pain, giving the effort to the survivor's fate, the daily struggle for survival. Beautiful, virgin landscapes show the powerlessness of a human being against the power of the element. The dramatism of the scenes is the result of an excellent assembly; sudden transitions between lighting and sounds.

Instead of music in the first part of the movie we hear voices of nature: the clatter of the ocean, the sound of wind or just silence. It is only with the last look of Chuck that the gentle, moving melody of Alan Silvestri resounds on the island. From then on, the music subtly complements the image, and where it's needed, squeezes tears. top world tech built a realistic, written emotions on a realistic foundation. The director takes up the eternal theme of wandering and the thirst for life - whose precursors were Odysseus and Robinson Crusoe - moving him into the twentieth century. He puts a question to which the film gives the answer: nothing has really changed since then, for over three thousand years. When a person is detached from civilization, it turns out that he does not need it to live.

What he can not live without is another breath ... and another person; the most beautiful, eternal force that makes it able to take this breath. .
