Movie: Sound of the Sea
Director: J. J. Bigas Luna
Critic rating: 4
This 2001 Spanish film is a glorified soap opera, but a darned good one, and with a lot more sex (and nudity) than you'll find on the tube. It's an interesting flick, but this review is filled with spoilers, so if you want to see the complete movie, stop reading now.
A young woman falls in love with a new literature teacher who has just come to town. Meantime, she is the object of affection of a very rich local businessman. She spurns the businessman and marries the teacher, and they have a child.
The teacher buys a fishing boat and fishes on his off hours. He also fishes for beautiful women while also enjoying his marriage. Then, he is lost at sea, and declared dead when his wrecked boat washes ashore.
The widow marries the rich man (of course) and enjoys a life of luxury until (gasp.....big surprise) the teacher turns up to rekindle his love for her. Since she's always loved him, she hides him from her new husband and the romance continues where it left off. Naturally, the new husband finds out, and all hell breaks loose, leading to a slightly surprising ending. While I won't tell you the ending, I'm afraid it's pretty obvious if you view the clips.
