Reviews


70
The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander make a photogenic pair in this sometimes sweepingly romantic film, the most roundly satisfying fiction feature Wenders has made since, well, that first one about the angel so in love he gives up immortality.
60
Screen International - Wendy Ide
Wim Wenders’ latest is a handsome production which, although it is rich with symbolism, is ultimately not quite as satisfying as it should be.
58
IndieWire - Kate Erbland
Choked by overwrought trappings and suffocated by an unforgiving narrative structure, Wim Wenders’ “Submergence” is only bolstered by a pair of sterling performances from stars Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy, both of whom somehow rise above the lackluster film they’re sunk into.
50
Variety - Owen Gleiberman
There are moments when the film has the ability to absorb us, however fleetingly.
50
Movie Nation - Roger Moore
Submergence is a soapy, melodramatic romance in quiet greys and limp emotions.
