"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.
This is a bright, broad, silly, harmless movie whose sweetness is a means to an end: "Escape From Sesame Street.''
Predictability gives way to touching drama.
What's missing is any of the real-life messiness that might have lifted this material from its creatively tic-ridden confines.
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.
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.
Explores serious themes - some quite dark - with a lightness of touch, providing well observed and genuine humour, sometimes through pain
I was constantly surprised by this often hilarious, affecting film whose performances match the depth of emotion achieved,
...if most of what happens is fairly predictable there are still enough surprises, and sincerity, to make this modest film directed by Ralf Huettner worth your time.
"Vincent" takes us to an interesting place, but getting there is a slog.
Against all reason we find ourselves caring, first about Vincent, then about the vulnerable Marie.
Huettner makes it a romantic as well as romantic comedy by positioning the characters against an awe-inspiring landscape.
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.
