Robert Redford, right, is the only actor on screen throughout this unique drama, as a lone sailor lost in the Indian Ocean, his yacht damaged and a savage storm on the horizon.

The film is meticulously detailed, realistic and - despite barely a word being spoken - riveting. Its trump card is Redford, a marvellous 77 and looking every inch the maritime man. His character has a shave just before the storm. Now there's a cool customer.
