Storyline

The Mother, the Father and their 16-year-old son live on a hill, at the end of a village. They wash hotel sheets for a living. The water supply is inconsistent and they often find themselves without any water. A couple of drillers - a father and his daughter - arrive, in order to solve the water supply problem. The family's harmonious world shatters into pieces. Everyone loves and hates everyone else. The thirst for love is so great that only death could quench it.

Beautiful story, unusual protagonists, unusual environment, lots of nice details and human interactions. The film title is ambiguous on purpose
25 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Saw this at the Rotterdam film festival (IFFR.COM) 2016. Beautiful story with an unusual set of protagonists in an unusual environment, all of that providing for sufficient material to arrive at a believable yet non-standard plot without making things overly complicated. The casting is excellent, so is the acting by all the people we see appearing. Tiny details to augment the situation make the film perfect.

Of course, what happens it neither revolutionary nor particularly novel, but I like these basic stories where all details in the final product have their proper time and place. The synopsis on the IMDb website may not sound welcoming, but the actual story is much better than what it seems at first sight. The ambiguous title may provide for some clues what it is all about.
