Trivia

Terence Davies wanted Rachel Weisz for the part of Hester Collyer after he noticed her and her "incredible talent" in Amy Foster (1997). He called his agent to meet Weisz, who he hadn't heard of before seeing her in that film, saying "Have you ever heard of this girl Rachel Weisz?". His agent joked him by answering "She's an Oscar winner!". Weisz laughs at this by saying "I don't think Terence (Davies) knows very well anyone who's not in a black and white film". See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Elton: A lot of rubbish is talked about love. You know what real love is? It's wiping someone's arse or changing the sheets when they've wet themselves. And letting them keep their dignity so you can both go on.

Wonderful drama
16 April 2012 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

The Deep Blue Sea is a dramatic romance which takes place around the post-war (WWII) period where the young wife of a British judge starts having a love affair with a royal air force pilot. The confusion and complexity or their situation puts their love into some strong tests. Mostly for their own self-challenge. Rachel Weisz is mature and amazing as a leading actress, and then comes Tom Hiddleston who unveils a beautiful supporting performance and freshens up a little bit the foggy mood of the film.

Terence meets Terence and a wonderful theatrical film comes to life. T. Davies wrote the screenplay and also directed the movie based on a love story play by T. Rattigan. The cinematography is absolutely theatrical. Feels like a never-ending stage. Therefore, expect some -not very long- slow scenes accompanied with instrumental classic music. The story leads you to expect and understand the outcome as it is.

If you want to see a good drama, this romantic one may be it.
