Raising some thought-provoking cultural issues, "Even the Rain" is a great modern film about the conscience of filmmakers.

Aunque no la vi a como se merece se me hizo una pelicula interesante, eran como dos historias paralelas relacionadas, lo que paso en el pasado y lo que esta pasando en el presente. Es como soƱar que estas soƱando, me quede encantado con las imagenes de los indigenas. La volveria a ver para entenderle mejor.

Even the Rain reveals a story of greed as Cochabamba's water rights are signed off, without the say so of the local people, to foreign corporations. This film is a real eye opener. Well made.

An intriguing Spanish drama that raises many complex questions about morality with well-constructed characters who have solid motivations for their actions, and the plot makes some curious parallels between the early colonization of America and modern-day imperialism.

A well-acted, touching movie paralleling the stuggles the Bolivian people have fought through over hundreds of years.

Fascinating juxtaposition of 15th and 21st century exploitation of indigenous American peoples via a film within a film. Despite being somewhat overly schematic (ref Stephen Holden) and with a denouement that stretches credulity, still a stirring depiction of both moral debasement and elevation.

BollaĆ­n masterfully encapsulates the legacy of violence left by the Spanish conquest in Latin America while delivering a compelling film about filmmaking itself. A provocative perspective about art, compassion and justice. Tosar and Aduviri, more so than GarcĆ­a Bernal, make it a brutally honest one.

A powerful piece with an elegant structure, addressing important political questions in an engaging way. We liked.

This is a rare find. A film that overlaps very well the beginning of a spanish abusive invasion with modern abuse by a multinational. And of course the utter carelessness of the government in between. Very good reenactments of some past abusive events by the empire and the current (or recent) riots. The human questions and relations are not simplistic in this film and renders the complex reality. People expressing niceties before trouble comes are not necessarily the ones able to fight or resist abuses. A lot is conveyed in an incredible short time. Great film.

Brilliant first half - the second peters out somewhat and grinds to a end. Worth seeing however.
September 29, 2015
A socially conscious and meta film, with a truly unique set-up, if more conventional execution.
August 25, 2015
Beautiful, ironic, sad, wonderful.

Wonderfully acted and gripping story... A standard action-drama, but it shined
January 22, 2015
Tremedously well done movie, which stuck to the truth of the movie inside the movie as well as what actually happened in Bovliia in 2000. Anyone who is aware of the Cochabamba Water War, including AmeriKan Bechtell Corporation's. involvment will find this a very interesting film. Tight, well directed, not "hollywoodized," excellent acting, and Honest.

Entertaining, informative and cleverly and emotionally put together. An outstanding metaphor for empires old and new, and the roles of individuals within and without them.

I am going to pass on this.
