Can a teenage girl dream that the old pool in a disused water park is an Olympic stadium where she is giving the performance of a lifetime, worthy of a medal, with Shirley Bassey singing “Nobody does it like me”? Can she forget she is living in a country trapped in a social and economic crisis and ignore the unemployment, lack of prospects and possibility of having to emigrate? Can she ensure that her happiness depends on her alone - or will she risk this happiness for love? The directing debut of Ana Moreira, the actress discovered by Teresa Villaverde who first cast her in the role of an adolescent facing a crossroads in her life (who can forget “Os Mutantes”?), “Aquaparque” is a radiant, musical yet tragic drama, offering the audience a glimpse of life as if they were in a film and could feel the emotions of others, yet still dream as spectators.
