Watch By the Sea - Alternative Versions.
Greetings again from the darkness. As a devotee and lover of the
cinematic art form, I tend to focus on the positive elements of films,
and maintain a near reverent respect for filmmakers who engage in
personal projects. Because of this, I typically avoid labels such as
"bad" or "good" and instead focus on the experience. Unfortunately,
this latest from writer/director Angelina Jolie (billed for the first
time as Angelina Jolie Pitt) has delivered a prolonged experience of
monotony and misery that can only be described as bad. Or awful. Or
even beyond awful.
It's based in the mid-1970's and filmed on the island of Gozo in Malta.
The setting is stunningly beautiful, and cinematographer Christian
Berger captures the essence of this unique spot with naturalistic
lighting and plenty of wide shots of the rocky beaches that provide the
foundation for a classy and quaint inn run by Michel (Niels Arestrup, A
Prophet). Roland (Brad Pitt) and Vanessa (Angelina Jolie) are the
epitome of an unhappily married couple
though they are stylishly
dressed while driving their 1967 Citroen convertible.
He is a writer who doesn't write and she is a former dancer who doesn't
dance. While he is not writing, Roland sucks down gin, beer and
anything else Michel will serve him. Vanessa mostly hangs out in the
room popping pills and watching a fisherman in a row boat. When they
are together, they rarely speak except to ensure we viewers understand
just how miserable they are
with a lousy reason that isn't explained
until late in the film. Mostly she bats her porn star fake eye lashes
while he sports a porn star mustache.
A glimmer of hope emerges when a honeymooning couple takes the room
next door. Lea (Melanie Laurent) and Francois (Melvil Poupaud) seem
quite happy and enjoy spending time together in bed. We know this
because Vanessa discovers a peephole where she can take in the sights.
In what is probably the only interesting twist, Lea and Roland are soon
a step that somehow begins the process of rebuilding
their relationship. Of course, that doesn't happen without many more
scenes of misery prior to the quite predictable finish.
Angelina is clearly paying tribute to the 1950's and 1960's French
art-house films, but having two unlikable lead characters who can't
stand to be in the same room never allows the viewers to connect
though she seizes many opportunities to show off her exquisitely
rebuilt breasts. The film is entirely too long and feels even longer
as it squanders a real chance to explore the second stage of
marriage. The beautiful scenery and Gainsbourg songs don't come close
to making this a movie worth enduring.
