Aga Woszczyńska’s meditative, measured debut.


A perfect couple rents a holiday home on a sunny Italian island. The reality does not live up to their expectations when they soon find out that the pool in the house is broken. Ignorant of the fact that the island faces water shortage, they ask for someone to fix it. The constant presence of a stranger invades the couple’s idea of safety and starts a chain of events, which makes them act instinctively and irrationally, heading to the darkest place in their relationship.


Though the title can be seen as a metaphor for the widening chasm between the couple, there’s a literal quality to it. This is a very quiet film. The soundtrack is dominated largely by the roaring sounds of the sea or the rolls of thunder that punctuate key scenes. Dialogue is also toned down, with the leads often sitting in prolonged periods of silence designed to let the atmosphere soak in.


Though probably never intended to be light-hearted viewing, this is surprisingly compelling and overall a striking examination of human nature
