Even the Rain
Focuses on Sebastian and Costa, obsessive filmmakers who, in their quest to uncover the myth of Christopher Columbus and resistance to colonial power by Indian rebel Hatuey, ultimately end up embroiled in a modern revolt against Western multinationals in the Bolivian "water wars" brought on by the forced privatization of Bolivia's leading public water companies in 2000.

A powerful, richly layered indictment of the plight of Latin America s dispossessed that cunningly parallels the Spanish conquest of the Americas with the 20th-century spread of capitalism, Iciar Bollain s fifth feature is her most ambitious and best.
Director Ic?ar Bolla?n mixes Even the Rain s various storytelling modes with an obviousness that ultimately negates enlightening intellectual or emotional discovery.
A splendid film about a movie crew blindsided by the real world.
There s a rueful, knowing quality to the moments when Bernal s character puts the film above all else, blinded to the fact that his pursuit jeopardizes the ideals he means to enshrine.
"Even the Rain" does have its pretensions, along with its ambitions, but it also illustrates film s power.
