It’s the second time that Tom Hanks works with Robert Zemeckis after 《Forrest Gump》. It’s not that kind of film of “chicken soup”but it also tells us something about ourselves, about life.
Actually Chuck Noland means“C no land”or“see no land”.You can feel the loneliness everywhere in the film. The sound of waves and wind, the words that Chuck speaks to himself, to“Willson”.Some people may think it’s strange to talk to a volleyball. But we all need something, maybe a faith, a man, or even a volleyball to support us, to live through the endless loneliness.
I have to admit that Tom Hanks is undoubtedly a skillful actor. It’s quite hand to play a one-man-show. The most touching scene is when Chuck loses Willson in the sea. He watches Willson float away but can do nothing about it. You can see the panic and the sorrow in his eyes. And when he stands at the cross of the road, it symbolizes a new start of life.
It’s a slow...
