A film about struggling to deal with paralysis. Author Joel Garcia breaks his neck while hiking, and finds himself in a rehabilitation centre with Raymond, an exaggerating ladies' man, and Bloss, a racist biker. Considerable tension builds as each character tries to deal with his new found handicap and the problems that go with it, especially Joel, whose lover Anna is having as difficult a time as he is. As Raymond reveals a dream about dancing on the surface of a lake to stay afloat, it becomes apparent that each of them must find his own Waterdance to survive his tragedy. Written by

The computer/word processor that Anna brings to Joel is an Apple Macintosh Portable, released in 1989. It was one of the first battery powered portable computers from Apple and would be followed by Apple's Powerbook series. Primitive by today's standards, it had a 16 Mhz CPU, 1 MB of RAM, could save data on either a 1.4 MB floppy disc or 40 MB hard drive and had a folding 640x400 black and white LCD screen. See more »

Boy, he sure came out of nowhere, didn't he?
It's a good thing we're already paralyzed.

It's funny how your life can change in a second... To attend ''The Waterdance'' for the first time it was an unforgettable experience, the way you need to get used to a new way of life it can seem frightening, and to notice that there are other people going by a similar situation it can help you to go on.
Eric Stoltz's performances and mainly of Helen Hunt (oh man!, Helen is the purest and graceful woman in earth...) are wonderful, Wesley Snipes also surprises in one of your last serious roles. A film simple and at the same time deep that doesn't get to leave us indifferent to the message that is transmitted: enjoy each moment of your life...
Really to a film as that the any hour is not attended!!! (sorry, it's a Brazilian expression...).
