[When the Sea Rises] treads lightly, but leaves little impression.
When the Sea Rises remains a strangely sad love story of rare poetic power.
An eccentric French comedy that is never quite as charming as it intends to be.
A charming, accessible movie that spotlights Moreau's talent against a fanciful cinematic backdrop.
It's nice to see a love story that deals with mature people. We're not likely to get anything like it from Hollywood.
It's a bountiful showcase for Moreau, whose lopsided, squinty beauty grows on you just as it grows on the drifter who eagerly volunteers from the audience each night.
Magical and enchanting.
An interesting and at times poignant blend of fact and fiction.
It's a distinct and bittersweet story about how romance, however fleeting, can pop up in the most unexpected places.
A bittersweet, if somewhat slight, slice of thespian life and love.
An unlikely romance, one that is impossible not to root for, despite the suggestion of menace that always remains close to the surface.
A delightful romantic comedy about two lovable eccentrics who enjoy playing together.
