A good job of making Brad Pitt 25 years younger in this movie. This film should be suitable as a bedtime movie- only if it was not that depressing. Waited for the main point this movie tried for - in vain.

As most of the other reviewers say, Unwatchable all the way through. So mundane.

Old story with nothing to save it except the beautiful scenery and a classic citroen auto.

A bad movie, boring, no real point. Well, maybe there was one, but a strange way to deal with their issue. Not worth watching.

By The Sea was excellent visually and romantically in its setting. This was enough, along with its calm and vacation-like feel, even for the viewer, to make it fairly pleasant to watch. Speaking of pleasant though, it had some heavy subject matter that almost seemed to do violence to the 'calm' tones of the movie. Perhaps this was appropriate given the film's purpose. By my own taste, however, I would have preferred for the film to be less heavy. I leave feeling slightly not at ease with my two hour investment of time. All in all, I am happy with this movie and very delighted by its wonderful setting.

An exquisite locale on Malta can't save this snoozefest. It's way too long for a mundane story.

Boring! As has been stated the scenery is beautiful so I gave it 1 star.

So boring I stopped watching half way through. Beautiful location but not good enough to endure through whole movie. Waste of time.

utterly failed for director! esp after seeing "unbroken" (3 stars from me), but which is written by the coen bros, not jolie herself, tho directed by her!
utterly pretentious! french locale, but definitely not as advanced as typical french film.
if not for me being a sucker of these short flash-backs, wanting to know why (but i guessed somehow anyway), i would have quitted halfway.
too bad for the nice cinematography & ok performance by brad & jolie.
excusez-moi, was there a premonition then for their marriage in real life?

Sexual Content: Not even the nudity or sex scenes could save this fiasco.

SPOILER ALERTS from IMDb quotes:
Vanessa: Do you see that fisherman? He goes out every day, comes back every night. Hardly catches any fish. What keeps him from going insane? From being so tired of it all? What is it we don't know?
Roland: I figured out your fisherman. He goes with the tide. You let it pull you out to sea or guide you back in. Sometimes you have to move with it. Sometimes, honey, that's all we can do.
