Watch The Deep - Alternative Versions.
Films like 'The Deep' are few, sporadic, and are usually not accepted
by many audience members, but are usually the films that end up meaning
the most in the end. I found that this film had a charm that I could
not put my finger on, upon viewing it for the first time. The book,
written by well known Peter Benchley (of 'Jaws' fame) was released on
the heels of 'Jaws' success, so the film was released a year later, in
'77, and was easily brandished as being a 'money film' but I assure you
it is much more.
Loosely taken from the book, the film captures the essence of the
title. When David Sanders(well played by newcomer Nick Nolte) is on
Holiday with his lover(the ALWAYS beautiful and aesthetic Jacqueline
Bisset, of whom the film rests well on) Gail Berke, the two uncover
items while diving: a small bottle of some sort, sufficient with
morphine, and an unrecognizable piece of jewelry, worn by sea and time.
Naive to Bermuda, the two continue their holiday, with many people
after what is in the bottle, and just who wants it, who should get it,
and what ELSE is down in the deep. Genuinely frightening, and
appropriately paced, this film not only relies on the situation to keep
interest, but psychological undertones to further tell the story.
One of the biggest things this film has going is the underwater
photography, shot with beautiful landscapes of coral, fish, and
dedication to what the actors explorations achieve. Filmed in
Panavision widescreen, this film delivers the whole underwater
experience, as each scene is carefully timed and arranged
photographically. The fact that filming was done creatively without CGI
is all the more fascinating, and you feel like you are actually there,
underwater, experiencing. This is buttressed by John Barry's positively
breathtaking score. Each note whispers a feeling under and above water,
springing in the air, and whooshing through the water, like an animal.
The theme is gorgeous and reflects not only the characters attitudes,
but the theme of the sea and the deep itself. It is at times violent,
and at other times soft and peaceful. The writing can be said something
for as well, as the scenes are like a ballet, with carefully
choreographed actions, and dialog through the special masks they wear,
that a whole scene could take place under water, and does. Benchley
adapted from his book, and the story works well.
The acting of the film could not be better. Nick Nolte is very
believable as the rambunctious and adventurous David Sanders, and he is
played with such prowess and eagerness, something that could be found
in all of us, toward the ocean. We really learn to feel why David feels
so much about the ocean, more so in the extended television version.
Jacqueline Bisset is hauntingly gorgeous as Gail Berke, the conscience
and voice of reason of the film. Gail is torn by morality midway
through the film, something else we all can relate to. And as the
danger caresses, so to does Gail toward what she believes in, and her
love for David. Romber Treece is played out with spunk and passion by
the late great Robert Shaw, fresh off the celluloid of Jaws, and makes
the role his own. Treece, being an islander, knows the bad, and goods
of the material they have found under sea, and acts more or less as a
guide to keep the two out of danger, while achieving his own
satisfaction to the sense of desire he has to the call of the sea. The
supporting cast is really great as well. Louis Gosset is daring and
intimidating as the main villain Henri Bondourant, one who kills at
will, and who provides the three main characters with plenty of
conflict, and Eli Wallach is sleazy and perfect as the only survivor of
a wreck, that later became the site of the treasure and drugs. The main
three do their best to help with the psychological undertones of the
film, part of the real charm.
'The Deep' is more than just a deep sea adventure, but a psychological
study of three human beings: One, an adventurous, intrepid young man,
fascinated by what is dangerous and unknown to him; The other, his
lover, a woman of strong passion, strength, and beauty on the inside
and out, who is drawn to those she cannot access or comprehend; The
third, a man who has been to hell and back, who still feels obliged to
his place of comfort, the ocean. The chemistry between these
characters, is what builds the undertone. Gail, is fascinated by
Treece, because he has been through so much, and feels drawn to his
reclusiveness and relevance. David is drawn to danger, and cannot be
denied his goal, needs the pleasure of experience, and Treece,
fascinated by both their innocent drives, can only help them thusly.
The actually deep, a character itself, is the combination of their
lively psyches coming together. When they are deep inside, they face
danger in the form deadly animals, explosions rigged in the wreck, and
most appropriately, themselves. They are forced to look inside
themselves, further explored in the book and television version, and
the resolution to the film is felicitous.
So when you look at it, 'The Deep' is a clever look into the deep of
our minds, as well as our dreams, our fantasies, and our weaknesses as
humans. If there is any way to uncover any of it, this film more or
less shows the way, and all the more with the entertainment it
delivers, gives us a true experience of what any 'Deep' is like.
