      philip w Well well well that was good I enjoyed that = great acting = bit hard to follow at times but all worth it = have a go you won't regret it . Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/24 Full Review Patrick P S Set in Greece with Greek subtitles the movie is nice with a good-natured taverna boss and customers who, like good food. It doesn't lack anything Greek and is spot on in most cases. Not in the least upsetting, depending on your own personal mental state, I enjoyed the goodness of it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/14/22 Full Review steve d The story is interesting and Katharine Isabelle is really good. She should be far better known. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The Green Sea was a movie with much good, and quite a bit of bad. The atmosphere was outstanding, with a clear sense of tension and immanent doom at all times. The acting was also superb and skilled. The beginning though was a bit too confusing, and the ending was a little unsatisfactory, and left a few questions too many unanswered. Certainly an interesting and unique work. 78/100 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Simone (Katharine Isabelle, Ginger from Ginger Snaps and the titular character of American Mary) has disappeared from life. Once, she was a heavy metal singer named Sim Chaos — metal is infused in every scene of this movie, from the shirts that characters wear to the music on the soundtrack from bands like Hazel Doupe. Sacrilegia, Malthusian and Vircolac — and an author whose first book was a huge success. Now, she lives in a house that looks like its becoming run down, with most of her life in boxes and her days revolving around how much vodka she can get her hands on. One night, she accidentally hits a teenager in a drunk driving accident. That girl, who is only called Kid for the majority of the film's running time and is played by Hazel Doupe, is actually the character in the book that Simone has been struggling to write since a massive tragedy destroyed her life. In Simone's dreams, the Kid is chased by old men through an abandoned factory. She also has dreams of the face of a man, a hunting accident and her bloody hands. Even when she tries to go on a date with a well-meaning mechanic, hearing the rumors about her from the locals in the small Irish town that she's run away to drives her to go overboard with her drinking. Director Randal Plunkett takes a story that could have meandered in sentimentality and delivers a supernatural take on the process of self-forgiveness. Isabelle is supercharged as the lead, as she has no concern with coming off as someone you would like to be around, yet you slowly get behind her and cheer on her personal growth. I was completely unprepared for this movie and the emotional power that it owns. This is the kind of movie that we need more of, a gorgeous yet dark examination of life that's seen through the lens of the fantastic.

      Mike McCahill Guardian Plunkett may well have resources enough to give himself a second shot behind the camera; his debut, the embodiment of a flawed-but-intriguing mixed bag, offers a fair bit to build on. Rated: 2/5 Aug 16, 2021 Full Review Keri O'Shea Warped Perspective The Green Sea can be unsettling, with some fantastical elements, but ultimately it's a very beautiful, humane and redemptive film. Jul 27, 2021 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com ...rewarding for audiences prepared to take a detour from the beaten path.... Rated: 4/5 Jul 16, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
