    Beautiful, contemplative, redemptive.

    A well made film with an exotic locale and high ideals. The problem is simply that it's boring.

    The small budget would have made this film proper for TV only, but the acting, the setting, the story and the effects were all there to make this lift off. The story is very contrary to expected. We'd think some magic would happen with some special power but the magic is only in what people believes, which could be dark, even black, or could be light and hopeful. That the film got itself so good while being so ordinary is as if it had a bit of god in it. Yes, it's believable. Kudos to all for making this.

    The Vessel est un film porto-ricain assez étrange en raison de son approche mais malgré tout, le message voulu passe bien et la réalisation est réussie mais le côté contemplatif du film ne plaira pas à tout le monde.

    I started to watch out of curiosity for a new movie from Martin Sheen and got hooked by the muted emotions depicted in the film, sadness, loss, resignation, love and catarsis. Beautiful and very delicate photography of the sea and the skies and perfect accompanying music. Parallelly, Martin Sheen does a good representation of a pastor who tries to influence, not sure if with much success, a small community to which he is a stranger.

    Confusing as hell and not particularly interesting. This is really just an extremely pretentious film.

    La fotografía es exquisita, la música es hermosa y los temas que toca la peli (la muerte, el estancamiento, el rechazo a la diferencia, la superstición, entre otros) son bien chulos. Las actuaciones fueron nice, aunque Leo y Douglas estaban como raros con los acentos. El tempo de la película fue lo que se sentía raro. Pudo haber sido a propósito que se sintiera letárgico. No es mi tipo de película, pero me gustó mucho.
