A pan-European collection of aquatically-themed coming-of-age shorts, this movie,
despite its segments varying in approach and also in subtlety, comes into
its own thanks to the wide array of topics - from sexual awakening to
trying to come to terms with one's own mortality - it covers in a
generally unexcited way that avoids spectacle, with the shorts all being
grounded and relatable, yet treating universal themes in a very individual
manner, and more like a slice-of-life than message movie. And while not
all the segments hit home with equal accuracy, each does make at least
some points to muse about and has at least something for every viewer to
