J. O.'s rating of the film The Deep

Behind the facts of the miraculous true story of survival in extreme conditions and the extraordinary strength summoned by the unfortunate Gulli, this film is primarily a meditation on life and the will to live. That being said, it rarely crossed into an unfamiliar territory. It would have been nice if the thoughts racing in Gulli's head came out a little more, post-trauma. But in the end, it was gorgeous and sweet.
