Ratings & Reviews

  1. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    Watch it to adore Mr. Fassbender & Mrs. Vikander for their wonderful acting. Watch it to admire a beautifully made production; shootings & landscape views are stunning. However, be prepared to dislike the script & partly the dialogues.

  2. Maoolina Fajrini's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    sloooow-paced. I even went to wash my face in the middle of the movie, when I came back nothing much to be missed. but the ending was tearing me up. I LOVE THIS COUPLE'S CHEMISTRY.

  3. Gonçalo's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    It's is such an old school melodrama that it features not one but TWO voiceover letters.

  4. rado's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    Slightly contrived, but very moving and full of quasi David Lean landscapes. The lights is happiness and the oceans are families. Can it shine on both at once?

  9. janice.hughes's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    Derek Cianfrance's minimalist film cast away in its secluded lighthouse setting off the coast of Australia has a fascinating plot about a foundlingbaby washed ashore in a boat. It is a tangled love story that is really pared back to a monochrome canvas compared to the complexities of Blue Valentine and The Place Benyon the Pines.

  10. Arthur Freitas's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    Cianfrance's departure from a Cassavetes emulation is a very welcome change, but THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS didn't bring with it the charming, degradating effects of love that both BLUE VALENTINE and THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES had so particularly. It's not charming, but is effective, I think.

  11. Charlie Boisvert's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    Si j’étais langue sale, je dirais « Un autre film où une femme pervertit un homme par son dérangeant désir d’avoir un enfant ». Mais, je ne le dirais pas.

  12. Madeleine Davis's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

  13. Levi Miah's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    A technical tour-de-force from Cianfrance as usual, with cinematography, sound (crap score though) & editing hitting biblical levels. Fassbender begins & ends as a broken shell, trying "...to keep the light burning for whoever might need it". Vikander & Weisz do, considering the worst shit ever happens to them. You know that montage at the start of Up? It starts like that, but the sad part is the rest of the film.

  14. Daniel Roque's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    Although Alicia Vikander cries enough to fill two oceans and the persistent dilemma about birth/adoptive motherhood, it's a good film. Vikander and Fassbender might as well be in the front row for the next Brangelina couple, so keep your kids safe!

  15. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    A rote moral dilemma concept is given greater gravitas by Cianfrance, Fassbender and Vikander who elevate the material beyond the sum of its parts.

  16. S.J.B.'s rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

  17. Fabio Di Felice's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    Molto bello e delicato. Un drammone solido, che nel corso delle (tante) 2 ore e 15 cambia anche genere un paio di volte e si concede una parentesi ad alta tensione davvero interessante. All'inizio sembra quasi Shining, con quelle premesse, la puzza di malattia metnale e l'isolamento. Fassbender come al solito intensissimo, se recitasse l'Ave Maria convincerebbe pure me. La Vikander bravissima e dolcissima.

  18. Absentia's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

  19. Nuno Marques's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

  20. Kamran's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    Cianfrance attempts to channel Davie's classicism with this amicable but lacking fare on romance and hardship. 71/100 - Good.

  21. Mohammad Ebrahimian's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

  22. João Portalegre's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    though not great, the setup (which makes up a lot of the runtime) has got a lot of good moments - I haven't felt a character's pain like this in a long time. when the plot kicks in, too much happens. nothing feels earned. the moral dilemma is too complex for what the film can handle. a lot of the scenes feel unnecessary. the ending is cheap. but the message is nice - it could just do without the melodrama.

  23. Zineu Simionato's rating of the film The Light Between Oceans

    this movie had a lot of potential, it's beautifully done and the casting is flawless. But at some point, when the plot of the movie really begins, it losts its way.
