Guediguian remains very tuned in to the myriad problems associated with living in a village and on the coast in the 21st century.
"The House by the Sea" feels like the work of a filmmaker gazing back over his own filmography as one might across a sparkling blue sea, and observing its tides.
A surprising tribute to the work of Yasujiro Ozu that is somewhat diminished by its noble sub plot. [Full Review in Spanish]
[Director Robert] Guédiguian's sensitivity... makes history envelop us with its framework of past and present. [Full review in Spanish]
What the film makes clear is that to achieve the future we want, we must learn to master the past, something that the Russian writer Anton Chekhov had already developed in some of his dramas. [Full review in Spanish]
The story ends when the protagonists are finally able to look to the future without qualms, despite their past and despite, also, themselves. [Full review in Spanish]
As exciting as it is bitter... [Full Review in Spanish]
... that wonderful trio of actors still does not disappoint. [Full review in Spanish]
The House By the Sea is ultimately a deeply satisfying and occasionally moving experience.
An ostensibly old-fashioned family drama that proves, despite an awkward final act, to be one of [Guédiguian's] most satisfying recent films, and indeed the darkest.
