The abyss (film di James Cameron del 1989)

THE ABYSS è un film di fantascienza del 1989, scritto e diretto da James Cameron con protagonisti Ed Harris e Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. La pellicola si è aggiudicata un Oscar per i migliori effetti visivi.

La vicenda si svolge al largo delle Isole Cayman dove un sottomarino americano affonda dopo uno scontro con un oggetto non identificato. Per evitare che del recupero del relitto se ne occupino i sovietici viene inviata subito una squadra della Navy Seal con al comando il tenente Hiram Coffey, uomo piuttosto tracotante, insieme alla progettista Lindsey, ex moglie di Bud, capo della piattaforma subacquea usata per il recupero. Durante l’esplorazione si assiste a strani eventi: organismi fluttuanti, creature piene di luce e dalla forma simile ad enormi pesci ed abitanti dei fondali marini. Nel frattempo la Navy Seal ha ricevuto un ordine top secret, ossia il recupero di una testata nucleare. In piena notte una creatura composta solo di acqua marina fa visita al team: da ciò ci si rende conto che nella vastità dell’oceano ci sono dei visitatori, che però non sembra abbiano intenzioni ostili. Il tenente Coffey invece è ostile con tutti ma, nel tentativo di prelevare la testata, muore. Dopo molte peripezie ed il riavvicinamento fra Lindsey e Bud, si scoprirà che il sottomarino aveva urtato una gigantesca città fatta di elementi non classificabili sulla terra ed abitata da esseri pacifici, che però hanno la capacità di distruggere la vita sulla terra. La versione cinematografica ha avuto un prolungamento di circa mezz’ora e ciò ha reso più comprensibile il ruolo del popolo dell’oceano.

Ambientato durante l’ultimo periodo della guerra fredda tra Stati uniti e Unione sovietica, con ovvi riferimenti a ciò, THE ABYSS è uno dei meno conosciuti, ma sicuramente più originali ed appassionanti film di un regista, Cameron, che ha sempre partorito opere di alta tecnologia ed interesse scientifico.
