The planet Earth is devastated by the lack of water. Desert and arid, left this place few living beings , who had to adapt to the new bioma.2
Isolated in small communities , living separated by vast deserts , is a group of people who survive on fishing and water captured by an " ultra - modern" tank. In a not too distant past ( about 15 years ago ) , this same location was a village where Bártok and Nara , two important scientists worked on developing a machine that generated water. However , his plan was aborted by a group of nomadic mutants that killed the couple of scientists and destroyed the village , leaving her only assistant partner, Gaspar , and their son , Kim .
The village became the reference point between travelers and musicians ( Bártok also built very good musical instruments ) and sometimes , some delegations stopped there to rest or make exchanges . In these delegations , the small Guili was left by his parents who were very sick .
Many people in Brazil dismiss the importance of this movie, due to their prejudice to young and popular pop stars like Sandy and Junior, accusing it to be just a commercial movie, aimed to promote their music. Such people couldn't be more than wrong: the movie actually is different from everything that has done before in Brazil. It has a lot of visual effects (seldom seen in Brazilian movies), it doesn't has much action nor long conversations. It's a movie made to delight our view, with beautiful art direction and amazing, poetic (although dry) landscapes. The story is slow-paced, reflective, but the plot just doesn't have enough elements to call you attention, sometimes it seems just too flat. Some important elements in the story just don't receive the required attention, leaving a lot of questions in our minds - I don't know if it was in purpose, to make us think and imagine, but there are just too much of these holes in the plot. Acting also could have been better. Even so, it's a delightful movie well worth seeing, hope to see more Brazilian movies using the same visual resources of Acquaria in the future
