La mer à l'aube

Volker Schlöndorff France, 2012

David R Williams's rating of the film Calm at Sea

A powerful moving film...and yet...there's something missing. Its too glossy. Too mannered perhaps. All the characters just a bit too heroic and stalwart. A deeper look could have certainly been taken...at barely 90 minutes there was time.
