The Mercy

As any sports fan knows, not all defeats are a failure. Even in the greatest of disasters there may be an ethic and an aesthetic, Pacific Rim Uprising which do not reach the category of victory, but which involve entering fully into much more complex and fascinating territories. That of daring to excess; the one of longing to the illusory; that of maximum self-confidence, even ridicule.

The real case of Donald Crowhurst, amateur sailor and inventor, who in the fall of 1968 started a race aboard his trimaran in Loving pursuit of the fastest solo voyage around the world, had already led to a research chronicle journalistic, published in 2016, and now to a movie. Their titles, The strange last voyage of Donald Crowhurst and The mercy, respectively, can not be more different in tones and objectives. And yet, how much sense do both of them have, since strangeness and piety are the feelings that inspire their odyssey, and those that are at the base of the same story.

That the Spanish distributor of The Mercy has decided to rename it here with the melodramatic and somewhat pompous An ocean The Tale between us should not distract us from the essential: that the film moves away from the usual epic story, and that James Marsh, its director, from a script by Scott Z. Burns (The ultimatum of Bourne, Contagion), knows how to discard the most elementary and superfluous of the case, to end up developing the most interesting: the price to pay for the yearning; the impossible exit before the imposture, the public lie, and its internal and external consequences; the reflection on the means of communication, and, above all, the denouncement of the greedy mass of informative meat of spectacular emotional charge, in spite of who it weighs.
