Water City

Danish director Martin de Thurah created this breathtaking bit of filmmaking for his country's exhibit at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai. The quietly stunning "Water City" follows good-looking Danes as they dive, swim and splash in super slo-mo, all to the soothing sounds of Jonsi and Bach. With its focus on H2O, de Thurah's short is subtly reminscent of "Waterworld," Kevin Costner's moviemaking shipwreck, except it's 4 minutes instead of 3 hours, and great instead of terrible.
