Rating Summary
EVEN THE RAIN (También la lluvia) is a brilliant metaphor of a story written by Paul Laverty based on an actual event and directed with considerable skill by Icíar Bollaín, the great Spanish actress, writer and director. This film is one of those rare 'docudramas' that bring to light historical 'secrets' that beg to be shared. In 2000 an American water company bought the water supply from the Bolivian government and the citizens of Bolivia were banned from collecting rainwater which had become corporate property. This resulted in a violent protest against the government by the indigenous Indians and the citizenry of Cochambamba, Bolivia who claimed their rights to the natural gifts of nature - even the rain. Laverty and Bollaín expose this injustice through a well-conceived story within a story.

Even the Rain (Spanish: También la lluvia) is a 2010 drama film directed by Spanish director Icíar Bollaín about Mexican director Sebastián (Gael García Bernal) and Spanish executive producer Costa (Luis Tosar) who travel to Bolivia to shoot a film depicting the Spanish conquest of the New World. Sebastián and Costa unexpectedly find themselves in a moral crisis when they and their crew arrive at Cochabamba, Bolivia, during the intensifying Cochabamba Water War in 2000, which their key indigenous actor Daniel (Juan Carlos Aduviri) persistently leads.
