Movie Info

AQUARELA takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Filmed at a rare 96 frames-per-second, the film is a visceral wake-up call that humans are no match for the sheer force and capricious will of Earth's most precious element. From the precarious frozen waters of Russia's Lake Baikal to Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma to Venezuela's mighty Angels Falls, water is AQUARELA's main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling visual detail.

  • A breathtaking and offensive documentary in the vein of Werner Herzog's Lessons of Darkness.

  • In the face of an actual, urgent and existing climate crisis, however, it feels slightly slack.

  • It's a movie on a powerfully ambitious scale. Its subject could hardly be more relevant.

    December 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a pretty interesting nature documentary as far as it goes. But given its globe-trotting scope and the risky location work involved for the filmmakers, it's a tiny bit strange "Aquarela" goes only so far.

    August 29, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Without any narration or talking heads, Kossakovsky's cinematic globe-trotting documentary dazzles us with doom.

    August 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Even at 89 minutes, the film seems too long. Kossakovsky just seems to want us to admire his footage, and that's about it. It becomes monotonous.
