Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The actors aren't unhinged enough for the scathing conceit, and the script is more of a mechanism than a revelation. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Nov 23, 2015

Rotten: Pitt invests the vague, cranky relationship with his usual intelligence and restraint, but the movie is destined to rank with such celebrity-couple fiascos as Gigli (2003) and Shanghai Surprise (1986). – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Nov 19, 2015

Rotten: The point to all this seems to be life is cruel and people are jerks, but sometimes very good-looking jerks. Deep. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Nov 20, 2015

Rotten: What are the artistic purposes for this tedious collection of frowning, drinking, bickering, peeping and smoking scenes? "By the Sea" is long on perverse images but short on ideas. – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Nov 19, 2015

Hemingway esque?

Interesting movie. But wasn't this a Hemingway plot?


This was shot beautifully. The music stellar. I really loved the intimacy of the movie. A must see, for true movie goers.

Much better than critics' reviews

In addition to the picturesque setting, pleasant surprises greet the viewer in this throwback of cinema. We really enjoyed watching Jolie and Pitt's arc of character development, the cute old guys in the French coastal town, and of course - the neighbors! Watch the film to find out...
