Amazing film about grief,loss and sadness
29 August 2008 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Australian film "Walking on Water" is one of the most original films about homosexual characters.The best thing about it is that unlike other gay films it does not glorify homosexuality and gay people.It shows gay people as perfectly normal ordinary mortals whose joys and sorrows are same as that of straight people.This film's director Tony Aires started his career in 1999 with a documentary called "Sadness". His feature film debut "Walking on Water" is about tough choices one has to make in life.It is said that life assumes a different meaning altogether when people are confronted with death.This is something which happens in this film as a gay character dies after waging a valiant war against his illness.This film revolves around a group of friends who cope with an inevitable grief arising out of their friend's death.Their presence highlights the fact that a slow death is more brutal than Euthanasia.As a tale of human emotions and their implications on ordinary people,Walking on Water shows that friends are always around when one is abandoned by family.This is one of the best rewarding reasons for watching this film.
