Algo Flota Sobre el Agua translates as the somewhat less exotic-sounding Something Floats on the Water. Arturo de Cordova stars in this easygoing drama about a fishing community located off the Gulf of Mexico. There's no real plot to speak of, simply a series of realistic, affectionately detailed vignettes. Critics were unanimous in praising the film, but almost as unanimous in questioning the casting of 17-year-old Elsa Aguirre in a crucial adult role. No one, however, found any fault with the rugged, evocative cinematography of Augustin Martinez Solares.
