About the Movie

Frankie is dying. Irene hasn't forgiven him. And they are racing against time to find their way home. Frankie needs help and Irene is the one he turns to. He must go home one last time. And, like so many times before, Irene is extending herself beyond her common sense. The two set out on a journey that becomes more than getting home; confronting the past, love, understanding, and self discovery. Barking Water is a tale of great love that looks at what brings us all together. It's a tale of home...and what it takes to get there.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The quiet humanity of the performances infuses the movie with a truthfulness that outweighs its flaws. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An overall lack of drive drops the pacing from languorous to a slow, stalled crawl, but the journey itself isn't the point here. For once, it's the destination -- forgiveness -- that really counts. – David Fear, Time Out, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Harjo is clearly giving his all in trying to convey a soulful mysticism in this existential journey. But the tone becomes a little ham-handed with all the lengthy interludes of barren fields, roadside fences and tracking shots of the ever-moving Volvo. – Ted Fry, Seattle Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Harjo poeticizes the open road with increasing redundancy, yet his identical scenic panoramas remain preferable to his dramaturgy, which mistakes silence for pensiveness. – Nick Schager, Slant Magazine, Mar 6, 2015
