Storyline

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 .

Special Family Film
14 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just recently saw Acquaria at a Latin Film Festival and was blown away. It is a very innovative film. The premise is similar to the film Waterworld with Kevin Costner but it goes beyond your typical doomsday story. The director has a vision that I haven't seen in American Cinema in quite some time.

First, the desert scenes are filmed like a Salvador Dali painting. It is so surreal and stunning at the same time. It is worth viewing just to look at the beautiful desert scenes.

Second, the actors are refreshing. The leading actor is actually a Brazilian pop star in real life. Her name is Sandy. I'm not exactly sure what kind of music she sings in her native country of Brazil but she is hot! This girl is so beautiful you cannot wait for her to be in another scene just to take in her beauty. Plus, she is a natural actor. She seems so comfortable in front of the camera. I can see her crossing over to American Cinema someday. Watch out! This girl can do it all.

I have to mention the dog in the movie. He is a Jack Russell Terrier named Mingus. This dog is probably the most talented canine I have ever seen on screen. Benji eat your heart out. The tricks this dog does in front of the camera are amazing.

And here's the best thing about this film. It is a family film with an intellectual plot so the adults can watch it with the kiddies and not get bored. This film is entertaining. I hope it finds wider distribution in the US.
