“Agua”

Two Young Men and a Pool

Amos Lassen

“Agua” is set solely at a swimming pool and changing afterwards. It follows a young man who goes there to practice in the water. He meets another young guy who starts swimming in the next lane. Their friendship grows, but when one decides to kiss the other, it may bring it all to the end.

The film uses repetition to show the subtle changes that went on in the relationship between the two guys. it’s a well-made film that’s well worth a look. Directed by Ricardo Esparragoza at the Universidad de Guadalajara, “Agua” is now being seen on the festival circuit.
