La tempesta perfetta (2000)

Regia: Wolfgang Petersen |
Gloucester, Massachusetts: un gruppo di pescatori, guidati dal determinato capitano Billy Tyne, dopo un periodo di magra, si dirigono al largo in cerca di maggiore fortuna; l'equipaggio del peschereccio "Andrea Gail" naviga oltre le normali rotte di pesca del New England, fino al Flemish Cap, noto per i ricchi banchi di pesce spada. Mentre si trova già in alto mare, la barca riceve l'allarme riguardo ad una tempesta che sta montando alle loro spalle, ma, decisi a non rinunciare alla ricca battuta di pesca ed ai guadagni che con essa ne ricaveranno, ignorano l'avvertimento e procedono nel loro intento. Sfortunatamente la situazione meteoreologica peggiora e l'uragano Grace è in rotta di collisione con altre due aree di bassa pressione, una proveniente da Sud, l'altra da Nord, dalla cui unione scaturisce la cosiddetta tempesta perfetta, un evento che, secondo gli esperti meteo, si verifica molto raramente.

Linda Greenlaw: [at the services for the crew of the Andrea Gail] I knew Billy Tyne, but I did not know his crew very well, but any man who sailed with him, must have been the better for it. Robert Shatford, Dale Murphy, Micheal Moran, David Sullivan, Alfred Pierre... May you rest easy long-liners, in fair winds, and calm seas... For those of us left behind, the vast unmarked grave which is home for those lost at sea is no consolation. It can't be visited, there is no headstone on which to rest a bunch of flowers... The only place we can revisit them, is in our hearts, or in our dreams. They say swordboatmen suffer from a lack of dreams, that's what begets their courage... Well we'll dream for you: Billy, and Bobby, and Murph, Bugsy, Sully, and Alfred Pierre... Sleep well... Good Night... Dettaglio
Bobby Shatford: [floating in the water during the storm] Christina? Christina, can you hear me? I don't know if you can, but I'm talking to ya, baby. Do you know how much I love you? I loved you the moment I saw you. I love you now, and I'll love you forever. No goodbye. There's only love, Christina. Only love. Dettaglio
Christina 'Chris' Cotter: [sitting on the dock next to each other looking out at the ocean] I'll be asleep, and all the sudden there he is, that big smile. You know that smile. And I say, 'Hey, Bobby - where you been?' but he won't tell me. He just smiles and says, 'Remember, Christina: I'll always love you; I loved you the moment I saw you; I love you now; and I love you forever. There's no goodbyes - there's only love, Christina; only love. Then he's gone. But he's always happy when he goes so I know he's got to be okay - absolutely okay. Ethel Shatford: [holds her hand] I love your dream. Billy's voice: The fog's just lifting. Throw off your bow line; throw off your stern. You head out to South channel, past Rocky Neck, Ten Pound Island. Past Niles Pond where I skated as a kid. Blow your air-horn and throw a wave to the lighthouse keeper's kid on Thatcher Island. Then the birds show up: black backs, herring gulls, big dump ducks. The sun hits ya - head North. Open up to 12 - steamin' now. The guys are busy; you're in charge. Ya know what? You're a goddam swordboat captain! Is there any thing better in the world? Dettaglio
