Variety
A dramatic triumph.

Premiere
In the way that water can heal and harm, this film balances moments of dreamy spirituality with the salty harshness of family disputes.
90
The Hollywood Reporter
The result is a film both poetic and profound.

What makes The Sea Inside such a riveting drama is that none of these relationships is sufficient to make Ramón want to go on living.
88
ReelViews
The Sea Inside is uplifting. This is a movie that may cause viewers to both laugh and cry.
75
Bardem is brilliant.

Chicago Tribune
Wrings honest emotion and riveting dramatics from its tale.
70
Village Voice
Unfortunately, Bardem is confined by more than Ramón's paralysis. He also must work within the limits of a partially numbed script.
50
The A.V. Club
When pinned mostly in the man's bedroom, Amenábar's flashier instincts are stifled by a bolted camera and a procession of issue-of-the-week clichés.
40
I remained strangely dry-eyed up to the final shot.
