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.
Nature is and always has been more powerful than the plants and animals that inhabit it. This Russian film has some pretty scenes but the backround noise and music are disquieting. Yes global warming is real, and suffering takes place and the face of despair is real. I have no idea what the writers and directors are trying to do.
Don't waste you time with this one.
