It's very difficult to see a so broken character as Lee Chandler.
The story is so tragic that it makes us realize how difficult it is to arrive at an inner evolution, even in a movie. Lee's state of mind is constantly reflected in the rigid and gray waters of Manchester that with a cadenced rhythm always return to the camera. The vastness of the sea reflects Lee's inability to find a foothold, an anchorage point, a point from which to start over, a reason to forgive himself. Nevertheless, the relationship with his nephew, free of sweetening, is the only authentic bond left, the reason to go on, but that needs and deserves time, a time that expands far beyond the dynamics of the film. I loved the soundtrack, classic and dramatic, disturbing at times.
