The movie takes the form of a lackluster women's-prison picture.

A powerful drama, albeit a flawed one with a clumsy, didactic script.
A haunting and disturbing film, set in 1938, about "widow houses." Though occasionally overwrought, it emerges as life-affirming.
The best elements of Water involve the young girl and the experiences seen through her eyes. I would have been content if the entire film had been her story.
The writer-director doesn't raise her voice, even as she firmly condemns the injustice. Water seduces us with its beauty and sorrow.
Exquisite storytelling, acting and visuals.
