Best part of story, including ending: A challenge to survive in a place where nothing can be seen except water. The old man never gave up. A real encouraging film to watch.

Best scene in story: When the old man let the ocean take himself into it, and suddenly a helping hand comes forward to rescue him.

Opinion about the main character: I like the old man for his effort to survive. There is nobody to rescue him, and yet he never gave up.
