Synopsis

Isra and Cheíto are two Roma brothers: Isra was sent to prison for drug dealing and Cheíto signed up for the Marines. When Isra is released from prison and Cheíto returns from a long mission, they return to San Fernando. The reunion between the siblings brings memories of their father’s violent death when they were only boys.

Twelve years have passed since La Leyenda del tiempo (The Legend of Time), Lacuesta’s film when Isra and Cheíto were teenagers. Now Isra returns to San Fernando to recover his wife and kids. But will he manage to go straight in a place with the highest unemployment rate in Spain? Their search for redemption, their need to sort out their lives and to find reconciliation between them unites Isra and Cheíto once again.

Critics Reviews

Enthralling and tear-jerkingly beautiful.Isabelle Regnier, Le Monde
The most moving film I've seen in a long time.Mirito Torreiro, El País
Moving, turbulent and above all, alive.Luis Martínez, El Mundo
““Between Two Waters” is pure cinema. […] Isaki Lacuesta is both a social observer and visual poet.Carlos Loureda, Fotogramas
Between Two Waters” […] succeeds in moving the audience without falling into the trap of being overly sentimental. Its brilliance lies in its simplistic and melancholy portrait of reality.Juan Sardá, El Cultural
