A monumentally moving experience, from the powerful acting by Javier Bardem to the evocative music, composed by the director, Alejandro Amenábar.

New York Daily News
Based on a true story, the movie has abundant humor and uplift - but it's a heartbreaker of extraordinary dimension.

The Sea Inside brings us outside and inside ourselves, and takes us to brave new aesthetic depths.

Premiere
In the way that water can heal and harm, this film balances moments of dreamy spirituality with the salty harshness of family disputes.

The result is a film both poetic and profound.

The Sea Inside is uplifting. This is a movie that may cause viewers to both laugh and cry.

Wall Street Journal
Has its share of contrivances, some more successful than others, but center stage is occupied by truth, and austere beauty.

Entertainment Weekly
The classy production, with its aesthetic graces, is especially convincing about the charisma of the man, a performance specialty of the great Bardem.

The film, quite rightly, is a tour de force for Bardem.

It's moving, romantic, dreamlike, flawlessly acted and so engaging as to make you forget about euthanasia before it jolts you back into recognition.

For the most part, the film stays steady-on, celebrating one man's crusade - and one family's heartbreak.
