Between Two Waters introduces us to two real-life brothers who have taken very different paths in life. After a long separation, Isra (Israel Gómez Romero) and Cheito (Francisco José Gómez Romero) reunite in their poverty-stricken hometown of San Fernando, where unemployment is among Europe’s highest and selling drugs is the fastest way of making a buck. While Cheito has returned to a loving family following a long tour with the marines, Isra’s return looks grim: his wife Rocia has rejected him, his children barely remember him, and he is struggling to find honest work. As memories of the violent death of their father resurface, the brothers will be forced to come to terms with what happened if they ever have a hope of moving forward with their lives.
Hand-held camera work paired with non-professional actors and an enthralling flamenco score enhance the natural urgency of this powerful study of social conditions at the margins, resulting in empathetic and essential viewing.
