The old man and the sea

A wonderful and inspiring adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's story of the same title.
Aleksandr Petrov, the one man Army behind this classic adaptation, has achieved so many well deserved prestigious awards for this once in a life time movie that can be made.
Recipient of the Academy Award for Best Short Animated Film in 2000, The Old Man and the Sea tells the story of an elderly fisherman.

Santiago is a proud man but he no longer has the energy that he once had.
He has not caught a single fish in weeks.
One morning, he decides to go offshore and to stay at sea until he catches something to prove to himself that he is still capable.
Thus begins a relentless battle between an old man and an enormous fish that may end up being the catch of his life. 
Extract from the 1958 film directed by John Sturges and adapted by Peter Viertel with Spencer Tracy
