“I heard from a swimming coach that how soon children learn to swim depends on how much they trust themselves and the surrounding world,” wrote the Hungarian polyglot, Kató Lomb. In this beautiful film by filmmaker, Luca Werner we meet three teenage boys, two of whom share an innate love of water and swimming. “I remember I used to beg my family to take me to the beach.. It was when I was learning to swim and I wanted to go as far as I could. And my father would shout at me because he was scared. But I never listened to him and kept swimming.” The film, set in Rhodes, is an exquisite homage to the sea, and to the idyllic carefreeness of youth. The third boy, the reluctant diver, says he fears what he can’t see. Anything could be lurking underneath the surface. “It’s hard to find sharks in Greece,” quips his pal.
