I have to admit that I missed the first ten minutes of this one - and a lot of the visual artistry was probably lost on me since I don't speak Spanish and spent a good deal of time reading subtitles, however, none of that matters since this is one that I will want to see again...and probably again! Son de mar (Sound of the Sea) is a wonderful film for anyone who believes that their "twin soul" is out there - and that neither life, nor death, can keep you apart once you've found each other. (If you haven't yet met up with your own soul mate, Jordi's eyes will certainly sooth your soul until he comes along!) If you've never been consumed by love - you won't get it. If you have been - and settled for less - this film could catalyze a full-blown mid-life crisis!
