      Kevin Maher Times (UK) It's beautifully done. Perfectly balanced. Always compassionate. Rated: 4/5 Jan 14, 2019 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) It's well-meaning and the naturalistic performances are persuasive. But there's a certain rheumatic stiffness to the writing, which treads rather heavily as it negotiates themes that would benefit from a lighter step. Rated: 3/5 Jan 13, 2019 Full Review Rory Marsh Little White Lies A languorous look at family and modernity that only just manages to give each their due. Rated: 3/5 Jan 11, 2019 Full Review Carlos Bonfil La Jornada The house by the sea is the most skeptical and taciturn work of the director who always showed the greatest social optimism in contemporary French cinema. [Full Review in Spanish] Jun 13, 2019 Full Review Edward Porter Sunday Times (UK) It's a bit hodgepodge, but the three actors are poignantly convincing together. Rated: 3/5 Jan 22, 2019 Full Review Jack Blackwell One Room With A View Perhaps something was lost in translation here, and the original French dialogue makes more sense or is less irritatingly trite. But even if that is the case, lazy story work and a uniformly bad cast still sink The House by the Sea. Rated: 1/5 Jan 18, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
