Is it a beautiful movie? Yes, it really is. I was transfixed and enraptured by the magnificent images in the movie. But I must say I really didn't 'get' why they put in the scenes of the Bellagio water show. I'm sure that water is all recycled. So it's not an example of waste. And the surfers? What is up with that. I loved the holy water scenes. And yes they went away from making it a talking head movie but they still had a couple of people talk about water. I just think they missed the mark here. They could have made a real education for people about water but they didn't. But it's worth seeing because it is do damn beautiful.
Vignettes demonstrating humankind's relationship to water are presented. Many of the vignettes portray water as a commodity, as integral part and parcel of the goings-on and/or as an input into the proceedings, often where its use affects its future use in another means. A few vignettes portray water in its cultural importance. Tying these vignettes together is a general presentation of the affect of climate change on how water can no longer be used as it once was, and how it will affect future use. Also tying them together is Edward Burtynsky putting together an equivalent book on the issue. —Huggo
