A beautiful expression of the deep blue sea
7 April 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I saw the film yesterday here in Paris and was truly in for a pleasant surprise. The film surprised me at every turn, and defied all the expectations i had due to mainstream storytelling pollution which i utterly dread sitting through for two hours. I waited for the story to become ridiculous, but it mocked my underestimation and grew in depth to reveal the true theme that is deeply washing over every shot of the screen, the "deep blue sea", "le moi oceanique", the deadly ecstasy of an overwhelming sexual desire that comes into a possessing ghost strangling all reason that these human beings hypothetically have. The beach and water theme, the opening and and end shot, and the low-angle shots of the water pulling at the characters' feet, this desire hovering within the screen waiting to pull them in are the most successful aspects of the film. The beautiful filming that is so well themed and constructed, this relaxed and ecstatic feel that transcends from the screen making the audience feel the exact erotic atmosphere in which the characters dwell and that pull of desire that comes across in the silence and in the sound of the ocean; and Robin Wright's extremely deep character building and original portrayal of female strength, pull the film together to a true work of art. It is real story telling. At its best. Ieft knowing these characters, i know where they live, how they feel, i know that they are still alive and haven't stopped breathing after i left the screening room. When characters are this real that you somehow know they exist across the world from you somewhere and are still feeling and seeing and laughing and crying, it's called excellent story telling.
