Sea of Dreams (2006)
Critic Reviews for Sea of Dreams
Sea of Dreams purports to be a film of 'magic realism,' but it's neither magical nor realistic.
Though good intentions don't necessarily excuse pic's more predictable elements, unjaded auds will see under-the-radar release as a rare treasure.
Pretty scenery. Pretty people. Pretty story. Pretty bad.
Sea of Dreams, a stilted romantic fable by director and co-writer José Bojorquez, places attractive actors in an idyllic setting but fails to capture any of the magic it strains so hard to produce.
The cast comprises some of the most beautiful people on Earth. In fact, the chance to see the still impossibly sexy [Sonia] Braga in action almost makes the whole exercise worthwhile.

[i]Sea of Dreams[/i] has the unfortunate circumstance of competing on the same turf as the wonderful [i]Como agua para chocolat[/i], a.k.a. [i]Like Water for Chocolate[/i]. As flawed as the plot of [i]LWFC[/i] may have been, the acting and the cinematography overwhelmed the flaws until they were trivial, leaving the viewer with a dreamy movie that enveloped you with a beautiful legend. [i]Sea of Dreams[/i] already has the beautiful legend. There once was a girl that the sea loved so much, it was jealous of anyone who loved her, and would kill him if he tried to go too far. That's a great premise. Yet as promising as the story is, it fails on all the regards that made [i]LWFC[/i] great. That said, it is not a horrible movie, and not a bad movie by any stretch. [i]SOD[/i] is a failed good movie, one that could have been much, much more.
