Storyline

Un drama urbano de amor y marginalidad, drogas y caídas al abismo. Eso ofrece el segundo largometraje de Josetxo San Mateo que se inicia cuando David, un chico que vive en la calle por vocación, se enamora a primera vista de María. Un día se decide a abordarla y le entrega un poema que ha escrito para ella: Báilame el agua. Ella no duda en seguirlo. Pero vivir en la calle no es fácil: las malas compañías, la droga, la delincuencia, incluso la prostitución se convertirán en compañeras de camino. Written by Tyler Durden <surf_er@eresmas.com>

A sad and beauty film
2 February 2002 | by (Spain, San Sebastián) – See all my reviews

Some people don´t like sad film but I like them a lot when they are well done. This film is a very good movie but probably you will left the cinema with tears in your eyes. Like most of films this one describes a love story, but a love story between poor and young people. "Bailame el agua" mix drugs, prostitution, alcohol and music in good measures creating a fascinating world of the suburbs. The acting is superb especially Unax Ugalde and Pilar López de Ayala. Both give to the characters a special feelling plenty of humanity. The film never falls in thopics. You must see it. It´s a punch straight to your heart.
