Summary, etc.:
Ernest Hemingway's simple but gripping short tale is a model of economical storytelling. Two directors adapted it into unforgettably virile features: that was intended for television but deemed too violent for home audiences and released theatrically instead. The first is poetic and shadowy, the second direct and harsh as daylight, but both get at the heart of Hemingway's existential classic.
