We did consider films about The Sea back in our early days but there’s so much rain around at the moment that I thought wateriness in general deserved a week.
There are some great dramas set on raging rivers (Werner and Klaus territory) and some gentle portraits set on lakes (well, one I can think of). Torrential rain can have devastating effects, as we are seeing, and yet drizzle and mist can prove beautifully atmospheric. Real life needs a bit of moderation; films prefer the extremes.
My choice is Pixar’s Finding Nemo, a film set almost entirely underwater, and one I was pleased to have the excuse to see in the cinema by taking a child with me. The animation is stunning and the jokes are pretty good.
What wet films would you recommend?
