The term “toxic masculinity” becomes ever fashionable these days. What makes someone a good husband and father? Providing enough money and security? Or is his presence more important? Brothers Isra and Cheito are struggling with this question.
To capture the passage of time, directors Isaki Lacuesta and Isa Campo returned to the rusty Spanish port of San Fernando (Cadiz), where 12 years ago they followed the Roma kids Isra and Cheito in La leyenda del tiempo (2005). Again they play with non professional cast and the boundary between documentary and fiction which, thanks to the natural acting and intimate camerawork, is almost invisible; his compassion for these struggling men bursts from every frame.
“That Isaki Lacuesta is probably Spain’s most underrated film director is again confirmed by Between Two Waters, his striking, potently human follow-up to 2006’s The Legend of Time.” (Hollywood Reporter).
