      Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Vincent Wants to Sea" never deviates from the predictable bonding-through-misadventure script, and it has little to teach us about the nature and treatment of the traveler's respective maladies. Rated: 2/4 Aug 19, 2011 Full Review Wesley Morris Boston Globe This is a bright, broad, silly, harmless movie whose sweetness is a means to an end: "Escape From Sesame Street.'' Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 14, 2011 Full Review Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post Predictability gives way to touching drama. Rated: 2/4 Jul 8, 2011 Full Review David Lamble Bay Area Reporter Tourette's syndrome, anorexia and obsessive-compulsive desires drive this surprisingly tender romantic comedy from Ralf Huettner. Jun 8, 2020 Full Review Kelly Jane Torrance Washington Examiner Its themes, its demons are sensitively handled -- but not less funny for it. Munich-born director Ralf Huettner has made a daring film that deserves to be seen far and wide. Rated: 4/5 Jan 8, 2019 Full Review Andrew L. Urban Urban Cinefile Explores serious themes - some quite dark - with a lightness of touch, providing well observed and genuine humour, sometimes through pain Mar 11, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Fantastic movie with great heart. Kind. Music was great. It was funny. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked it better than the critics. Though it was a bit predictable and heavy handed, it's a sweet story. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I give it half a star more because it has a decent direction of photography (there are some wonderful landscapes), but in general it's a very uninspiring and bland road movie, with a couple of funny moments. The ending is failed too. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Amazing acting. Fun. Thought provoking. Beautiful scenery. I highly recommend. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Cute German Foreign film about a young man with Tourette's syndrome who is institutionalized by his father. He is forced to room with someone with OCD and befriends a woman with anorexia. They steal the psychiatrist's car in an attempt to visit the Italian shore Watching them insult each other while dealing with their respective problems was entertaining. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Quite amusing but hasn't lived up to the expectation upfront. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
