Emine Yıdırım, writing in Today's Zaman, says this is, "a film which aims to say a lot", and, "indeed underlines the dire situation of the thousands of refugees that try to cross the borders of Turkey and Greece", but, "while achieving some of its ambitions, specifically those of the political and worldly context, Brought by the Sea unfortunately disappoints on some very crucial emotional points."
