Joblo | 'By The Sea' Review


BY THE SEA is indeed quite lovely on a purely visual level; cinematographer Christian Berger (a frequent collaborator of Michael Hanake's) has taken advantage of both his lead actors and the incredibly lush Malta backdrop to create an endless series of postcard-perfect shots. Come to think of it, BY THE SEA would be a perfect movie to have play soundlessly in the background of a bar or cafe, where one could drink their problems away while beholding the inflated egos of mega-stars as they playact a dinner theater version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

The story is too old to be commented.
