Psihološka vojna za stanovanje med nepremičninskim podjetjem in osamelo vdovo v izvrstni upodobitvi brazilske filmske dive Sonie Braga. 

65-letna vdova Clara, upokojena glasbena kritičarka, je vedno živela lagodno. Zdaj je zadnja stanovalka Aquariusa, dvonadstropne stavbe v prestižni obmorski soseski v Recifeju, zgrajeni v štiridesetih letih. Vsa sosednja stanovanja je že pokupilo podjetje, ki ima z ozemljem, na katerem stojijo, druge načrte. Clara ne namerava zapustiti stanovanja - zanj se je pripravljena boriti do konca. Pogajanja s podjetjem Claro spravljajo ob živce, a v njeno dnevno rutino vnašajo tudi nekaj malega vznemirljive napetosti. Obenem jo dogajanje prisili k razmišljanju o njenih bližnjih ter o preteklosti in prihodnosti. 


Spominjam se, kako sem spremljal usodo hiše in njenih lastnikov. Ko so se prebivalci izselili, se je nekega dne pojavila tabla, ki je oznanjala gradnjo nove stavbe. Nekaj mesecev pozneje sem ob prihodu domov zagledal buldožer, kako naklada ostanke hiše, ki je tam stala več desetletij. Rušenje je trajalo samo nekaj ur. Ta proces rad uporabim pri svojih filmih, pričanje o spremembi skozi stališče posameznika. V filmu Aquarius Clara postopoma ugotovi, kaj se dogaja z njenim prostorom in osebnim okoljem.

Psychological war for a flat waged between a real estate company and a lonesome widow brilliantly portrayed by the diva of Brazilian cinema, Sonia Braga. 

Clara, a 65-year-old widow and retired music critic, has always lived a life of leisure. She is the last resident of the Aquarius, an original two-story building, built in the 1940s, in the upper-class, seaside neighbourhood in Recife. All the neighbouring apartments have already been acquired by a company which has other plans for that plot. Clara has pledged to only leave her place upon her death, and will engage in a cold war of sorts with the company. This tension both disturbs Clara and gives her that edge on her daily routine. It also gets her thinking about her loved ones, her past and her future.


I recall observing the evolving destiny of a house and its owners. Having seen the occupants move out, I saw a sign go up one day, announcing the construction of a new building. A few months later, I got home to find a bulldozer clearing the land where that house had stood for decades. It had taken barely a few hours to demolish it. I like to apply this process to my films, testifying to change through a viewpoint linked to an individual life. And so, in Aquarius, little by little, Clara grasps what is happening to her space and her personal environment. (Kleber Mendonça Filho)
