About the technical level there is nothing bad to say, the film is quite stimulating in terms of video and audio. [Full Review in Spanish]

By the Sea is a hard watch in a lot of ways, not because the subject matter is difficult to watch unfold, but because the slow-going plot and sparsely-used dialogue will make you impatiently awaiting the end.

Nothing ever truly sizzles. The result is a film that is very flat, and easily forgettable.

The chemistry between Brad and Angelina is killer. It palpable and obvious it is from beyond the screen.

It's a shame because we know what they're going for, that French Italian new wave idiom but they never get there. It approaches the artistic heights, but no cigar.

Along the way, it lost itself, turning into something that is neither here or there. It is a film that is as confused as its barren characters.

Jolie appears to have spent more time picking out lingerie and arranging it in silk and satin than writing the script or even trying to get her husband to act

It's touching, but it doesn't save the result from becoming anembarrassment.

It's clear that [Director] Jolie-Pitt is going to take her time to develop the plot. Also, that the story itself is small. [Full review in Spanish]

Cutting, provocative, introspective and wickedly astute, the elegant art-house melodrama juxtaposes beauty with the ugliness of the institution [of marriage].

From the moment our gilded couple hove into view in one of the most beautiful cars ever made -- a convertible Citroën DS -- I have to say I rather warmed to it, despite its obvious lack of commerciality.

The result is an uneven film that tests viewers' patience as holes in the narrative are filled with unhappy stares and beauty shots of the Maltese coastline...
August 21, 2017
So it's a misfire, but one that springs from a deeply felt place.
August 11, 2017
The message reached by the end of the film is worth the wait, as long as you're willing to ponder the meaning after the final scene.
January 10, 2017
This movie would have been a lot better if it weren't so concerned with being beautiful or important.

Thankfully, Jolie Pitt the director is in much better form; and as ponderous, maybe even pretentious, as some of this might be, there was never a moment where I wanted to look away from the screen.

There is no doubt that this drama is a half-hour too long and slow-moving, but Jolie and Pitt do some of their best work in scenes here -- and they don't hold back.

For those of you who complain about the multiplex offering nothing of substance for adult audiences, this is a grand opportunity for you to put your money where your mouth is.

Might truly be the most narcissistic vanity project of all time.

Jolie-Pitt, as director, is wading into the territory of Antonioni's bourgeois disaffection... But it takes much more than this to make art out of inertia.
