"Children of the Sea" finds plenty of beauty and purpose in the watery depths but doesn't provide enough grounding first: It's all too easy to get lost 20,000 leagues under the sea.

The universe may in fact be held together by dueling perspectives, but the only thing consistent about Children of the Sea is its inconstancy.

It leaves you with the sense that the art form's boundaries have been nudged a little wider as you watched.
