What are people saying?

  • IA's rating of the film I Prefer the Sound of the Sea

    This understated, cards-close-to-its-chest drama shows the cultural divide between north and south Italy (both corrupt, though in different ways) and its influence on the failure of relatives and friends to connect in the tidy, ordered ways we expect from conventional movies. The finale of this too-obscure film dares to disappoint our expectations but suggests the sound of the sea is enough to keep a man going.
