300 Days alone... - The Movie

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 3 years ago

To tame a wild pig or build a shelter, Xavier Rosset, the swiss Robinson Crusoe, spent in 2008 almost 10 months on Tofua, an island in the Pacific Ocean with only a machete and a swiss knife as a tool, not using the obolete construction left by the last inhabitants.
It is a psychological true story between solitude and loneliness.
After 3 minutes, you won't be willing to leave your screen.

Ce film existe aussi en version originale française , Xavier explique dans sa langue maternelle ses souffrances et ses joies. Cette version est un peu différente de celle en anglais.

Thank you

Wow, to be honest. This grabbed and kept my attention longer than most shows on Netflix. This was an amazing watch.

the pig story made me emotional, a part of me was hoping she would come back one more time towards the end

i wasn't really expecting staying for an hour watching Robinson Crusoé on his volcano island. But i have to admit, it was the best thing i did during a boring morning. And now i know how to make a leaf roof.

This is the fourth time I've watched this all the way through. Makes you really appreciate what we have in our lives, yet also makes you realize the downfalls of society, how it complicates life in it's own ways. He wasn't worried about how many likes his social media comments got or whether or not he showed up to work on time; life on this island is simple. He provided first aid to someone on the island, he was rewarded with a dog to keep as a pet to help aid in the isolation of being alone. Do good things, and it all comes full circle.

That guy walked 6hours to give him a dog for what he did. That's some real dedication.

Thank you and Mr. Rosset for capturing/publishing this masterpiece. It's one of the most beautiful and happiness-giving things I have ever found. Today I found it again after a few months where I didn't save the link anywhere. So I'm very glad to be here :)

I can't express my admiration for Xavier's courage and endurance. Experiencing this adventure through him helped open my eyes to discovering what I truly want and need in life.

One day, I hope to realize something similar - though not alone, starting with fewer supplies (making all tools from scratch), and for a longer period of time. That is my dream.

"if one day she came back to say hello, I would be very happy" the pain in his voice just broke my heart.

This was both incredibly sad and amazingly uplifting at the same time

What an absolutely amazing video, so inspiring. I hope he kept the dog when he went back home.

that's the greatest wild experiences i have never seen before! i am not sure whether i could survive or not if i am in the same situation. It is a amazing video and strong recommended to everyone who want to try to do the similar thing in wild.

We need an update on how this affected his life, the things he learned, just anything. I just hope he’s happy as can be now.

Man, he had lime from shells clay is everywhere in the ground and volcanic rock, this guy knew nothing about Roman concrete, that’s what I’d built my house out of, I don’t think he thought a lot of things through, but adapted none the less, the hard way but he did it, and this was a massive accomplishment, great video bud
