It has been directed by Kei Kumai as a film that seems more melodramatic and sentimental than Kurosawa's norm.
Filled with love and melancholy, it's a fitting, fond epilogue to [Kurosawa].
I don't think I'm going too far out on a limb by saying the Sea that Kurosawa must have envisioned had to be a whole lot more compelling and focused than the one now delivered by veteran director Kei Kumai.
An undistinguished affair.
It is a little like following a Jane Austen novel.
[T]here were times when The Sea is Watching bored me. But Kumai and Kurosawa won me back with the final scenes, which are stark and beautiful, and a fitting finale for one of the world's great filmmakers.
sad and compelling, yet laced with an underlying message of dignity and hope. Perhaps Kumai is no Kurosawa - but I don't know if Kurosawa could have done it much better.
It's not only worth seeing as "Kurosawa's last story," but also simply as a good, solid drama.
While this material isn't necessarily up to the standards of Kurosawa's best work, it does warrant at least a look.
You could literally hang any random frame on the wall and call it art.
Those who delight in small-scale virtues may find their interest held by the meticulous detail that Kumai lavishes on various Japanese rituals -- everything from pouring tea to holding swords. Everyone else, however, need not check in.
[A]delightful and surprisingly feminist film.
Long and boring..
