What are critics saying?


L.A. Weekly by Ella Taylor

What makes The Sea Inside such a riveting drama is that none of these relationships is sufficient to make Ramón want to go on living.


Village Voice by Laura Sinagra

Unfortunately, Bardem is confined by more than Ramón's paralysis. He also must work within the limits of a partially numbed script.


The A.V. Club by Scott Tobias

When pinned mostly in the man's bedroom, Amenábar's flashier instincts are stifled by a bolted camera and a procession of issue-of-the-week clichés.
