The title of this low-key Uruguayan comedy translates as "too much water," which also sums up its central running gag. A divorced middle-aged father vacations with his emotionally withholding son and daughter (of whom his ex-wife has custody), only to be thwarted in all his plans by a never-ending rainstorm. Alternately dignified and inept, the loser protagonist is familiar from numerous recent Uruguayan comedies, though frumpy-looking Nestor Guzzini (who appeared in the similar-minded Acne and Gigante) hits enough charming grace notes to make the character distinctive. Ana Guevara and Leticia Jorge wrote and directed this sweet, modest character portrait, which bogs down only in its needlessly arty visual flourishes. In Spanish with subtitles.
