    The story is rather simple and the film somewhat unstructured ... But the message is clear...We need water to survive.

    Water connects all life and all humanity. That is the message of this beautiful documentary shot extensively all over the world. Without attempting a central narrative or plot, Watermark highlights the importance of water to human civilization and how this fragile resource should be managed in a sustainable way.

    Some gorgeous imagery in the documentary highlighting the relationship between humanity and water. Some great food for thought. Check it out.

    Visually spectacular in every way film should essentially be. If every documentary was this well shot every documentary would be at least a near masterpiece. You might think a film about water would be dull. You might think that, but you'd be very incorrect. This is simply an excellent documentary.

    Boring, took the idea of a picture is worth a thousand words to far. No overarching narration, not over arching theme. You will not learn much of anything,

    I had the opportunity to take in this work with a question and answer session by one of the directorsJennifer Baichwal. The cinematography was beautiful, despite the frequent , disturbing imagery. I went in expecting to receive a lot of information. Instead, it was more of a human impact piece. Educational, heartwrenching, beautiful, ugly and well rendered. Many of the beautiful segments might be taken for granted by the viewer, but came only as the result of ingenuity or human peril.
