Aquarius (18)


From the archive

This film was last shown on 30 March 2017

Faced with mounting pressure to sell her apartment to property developers, Clara (Sonia Braga) is the last one standing and must fight fire with fire. To the money-driven developers, the space is a prime investment opportunity but for Clara it is her home and she is prepared to do whatever it takes to save it. Aquarius is a film that studies our obsession with and attachment to places, objects and echoes of the past and how they make our lives rich with meaning. It is also a film about a woman - her life, loves and memories - and Braga is faultless as the unstoppable force that is Clara.
