In 1989 the trimaran Rose Noelle set sail from Picton, New Zealand, bound for Tonga with four crew. After a freak wave capsized the yacht, they drifted for 119 days before landing on Great Barrier Island.
119 days abandoned (119 ngay sinh ton) at sea makes you appreciate what you have. During a pandemic when things we take for granted are no longer available. I’d much rather take the situation we’re dealing with now than be stuck at sea for 4 months. The 4 guys create a colony on the boat.
The men create friendships, growing with every day and they work together to overcome the impossible obstacle they’re faced with. Just a feel good movie. When all the men return home and their families are in awe, it makes you appreciate your family even when you want to get out of the house during quarantine. Recommend everyone to watch this, you may not like the characters, but the message is powerful and I will never forget this movie.
A well-told story with some good acting in Abandoned (phim hanh dong my). I like that there is no bond of friendship formed, no heroic acts of self sacrifice, no monumental moment of decisive action: just day-to-day survival at sea in very precarious circumstances.
