Storyline

It's the last summer of the Second World War in Yugoslavia, but so far nothing much of this has touched Andrea. He's the lifeguard who has never had to save a life and as such is a well-liked figure of fun. Yet, as far as he is concerned, the river is good to him, giving, and not taking. However, the evils of war are not far away. Andrea agrees to take care of two refugees, the widow of a partisan and her son. Andrea and his friend Martin are uneasy... The water devil, who lives near Martin's house in the faery waters, is becoming restive,and this means trouble. Andrea, however, is delighted when he saves his first drowning man. But just whose life has he saved? Written by <chris@wessex.ac.uk>

SUSAN GEORGE, TOM CONTI AND ROD STEIGER ARE OUTSTANDING
20 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Susan George once again gives a wonderful down to earth performance in a very different film role, a mature woman with a child and having to make life and death decisions. Tom Conti and Rod Steiger excell in their acting abilities in a film which kept me spellbound right to the very end.
