An improvable but valuable work. [Full review in Spanish]

The settings are sometimes more interesting than the characters' own behaviors. [Full Review in Spanish]

Despite big-name stars, Wenders' film will provoke nothing but indifferent shrugs from the few who choose to sit through it.

Dabbling in topical themes like climate change and terrorism, all while attempting to execute a Bond-esque, star-crossed lovers narrative. Submergence's commentary ultimately conveys a whole lot of nothing.

"Submergence" not only leaves the talent involved underwater, but the audience also longs for anything of significance to cling to.

If you've ever wondered what Wim Wenders would do with a Bond movie, here's your answer: not much.

Even two glamorous and well-matched stars of the moment can't do much to undermine the Wenders meander.

It's a love story, it's a spy thriller, it's an underwater adventure, it's about terrorism, it's about climate change, it's about being ghosted by text (!). But ultimately - sadly, predictably - it's also a bit of a mess.

Wim Wenders' latest is a handsome production which, although it is rich with symbolism, is ultimately not quite as satisfying as it should be.
September 13, 2017
The most roundly satisfying fiction feature Wenders has made since, well, that first one about the angel so in love he gives up immortality.

... the film revels in playing up hinky parallels that rarely coalesce into anything of much substance. It sinks.
