The big draw here for fans is the phenomenal surfing footage, which captures the brutal beauty of the landscape and surfers gliding through waves so powerful they look as if they could snap a person in half.
The character's scenes with his mother (Vicky Hernandez) and the next-door-neighbor he adores (Viviana Serna) are engrossing in their unfussy realism, as Cruz...uses the tiniest of movements to suggest the red-blooded man trapped inside the infirm body.
The cultural shift onshore isn't closely examined, but when the action moves into the water the attraction of the waves is eloquently established by cinematographer Kevin Smith.
Unlike Aileen's, the film moves at a gentle pace, keyed to the town's seasonal rhythms as Whitaker looks in on the households of the surfers and their families.
...like surfing itself, you must adapt and change to suit your environment.
Stunning local big-wave destinations Riley's Wave and Aileen's Wave, at the base of the scenic Cliffs of Moher, feature in the film.
These are fine character studies, but, like its subjects, Between Land and Sea seems most comfortable out there amid the brine. Kevin Smith's photography is sublime.
