Did You Know?

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

Hester Collyer: Lust isn't the whole of life, but Freddie is, you see, for me. The whole of life. And death. So, put a label on that, if you can.

Pointless
13 August 2012 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I am not surprised that this movie got such a limited release - it is incredibly depressing with a lifeless tone throughout, so be prepared; if you are looking for entertainment or storyline, go elsewhere. Everything, from the lighting to the sound to the music is dark, sporadic and absolutely miserable.

The only redeeming thing about this was the acting, which was excellent, but not nearly enough to make it worth putting oneself through the excruciating boredom and misery. Unless, of course, you feel like wallowing in depressing celluloid for two hours.

I am all for a bit of melancholy and darkness in an art film but insist that it is balanced out with an interesting story, memorable scenes and zest. The Deep Blue Seas contains none of these and seems to be nothing more than an illustration of a depressed woman who makes bad choices. How unique and uplifting:)

Avoid and be happy!
