‘Through My Window: Across the Sea’ (2023) Movie Review: Adolescence, Maturity. . and Ice Cream

Through My Window: Across the Sea is a film directed by Marçal Forés starring Clara Galle and Julio Peña.

It is a story about teenagers and a sequel to “Through the Window,” which takes the elements that made the first movie a success, emphasizes them, and gives them (especially at the end) a touch of maturity.

However, let’s be honest, nothing will make us forget the scene of the girl licking the ice cream in the pool with a parallel montage of the boys practicing… erotic games.

Yes, you can imagine it perfectly.

About the Movie

From the beginning, the movie is clear: the first movie had it clear, that the important thing was to accentuate the “spicier” scenes to fill the rest of the script. This also happens in action movies, where if you remove the chase scenes and such, the rest of the movie falls a bit flat (even with the best movies).

Here, on the other hand, it is the theme of eroticism or “risqué scenes” that, with young and handsome characters, will serve to give the younger audience what they want.

It’s not bad if we take away the rest: it has a story to tell, a sort of love triangle, and the main character is trapped in a dilemma. In the end, something happens that changes everything and makes everyone mature.

However, it remains a product that is formulaic at all times, what we call a “formula” that works very well with those obvious erotic arguments that have worked so well. It’s not “Last Tango in Paris,” there’s no stylistic display behind it or an epic about self-destruction, but the movie is well-maintained at the production level with its arguments.

They are what they are, and they knew it from the moment someone came up with the idea of making a sequel.

Our Opinion

Is it dispensable? Absolutely. It is a product exclusively for young people that does not have much to contribute regarding the History of Cinema, but it is entertaining, enjoyable, and knows how to take advantage of its more or less light eroticism weapons.
