Teenage Lucia and her brother Federico are spending summer with their father. Divorced, Alberto wants quality time with his kids and takes them to a popular resort. As the days pass and the rain pours down incessantly, their summer rental home seems to get smaller and smaller.
Co-directed by first-time feature filmmakers Ana Guevara Pose and Leticia Jorge Romera, Tanta Agua magnificently captures the claustrophobic atmosphere that a teenager experiences when forced into close quarters with her family. Lucia moves between wanting to share this time with her father and brother, while desperately wanting the summer to end.
Poignant and very funny, Tanta Agua adeptly portrays the wonders and the horrors that are an integral part of family vacations.
