Movie Info

Vincent suffers from Tourette's Syndrome and, after his mother's death, is institutionalized by his father. He ultimately escapes with two fellow patients -- an anorexic named Marie and the obsessive-compulsive Alexander. His mission is simple. He wants to bury his mother's ashes in the seas off Italy, as was her dying wish. But to get there he and his friends steal their doctor's car. If caught, it could all be quite an embarassment for Vincent's politician father. But the real problem is that Vincent and his friends threaten to drive each other crazy. --(c)Corinth

Critic Reviews for Vincent will Meer (Vincent Wants to Sea)

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

"Vincent Wants to Sea" never deviates from the predictable bonding-through-misadventure script, and it has little to teach us about the nature and treatment of the traveler's respective maladies.

August 19, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

This is a bright, broad, silly, harmless movie whose sweetness is a means to an end: "Escape From Sesame Street.''

July 14, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Predictability gives way to touching drama.

July 8, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

What's missing is any of the real-life messiness that might have lifted this material from its creatively tic-ridden confines.

July 1, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Like a lot of recent foreign and independent films, "Vincent Wants to Sea" tends to thrash around while its creators try to locate a finale that's neither obvious nor unrealistic.

June 30, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4

The principal characters can be reduced to a handful of tics, and the entire story line is immaculately devoid of incidental detail. It's like sitting in a padded cell for about 90 minutes.

Audience Reviews for Vincent will Meer (Vincent Wants to Sea)

Cute German Foreign film about a young man with Tourette's syndrome who is institutionalized by his father. He is forced to room with someone with OCD and befriends a woman with anorexia. They steal the psychiatrist's car in an attempt to visit the Italian shore Watching them insult each other while dealing with their respective problems was entertaining.
