Water is the main protagonist, seen in all its great and terrible beauty. Mountains of ice move and break apart as if they had a life of their own. Kossakovsky's film travels the world, from the precarious frozen waters of Russia's Lake Baikal and Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma, to Venezuela's mighty Angel Falls in order to paint a portrait of this fluid life force in all its glorious forms. Fragile humans experience life and death, joy and despair in the face of its power.

It's good, but not that good
It's an impressive documentary, the first 30 minutes in particular is great however i feel it is so loose and lacking in narrative that the last 30 minutes I wasn't that bothered...its a cinematic feat though and deserves credit for the cinematography alone
