Walking on Water is a 2002 Australian drama film directed by Tony Ayres. The film explores the grief, tenderness, stupidity and humour that arises from death.


When Gavin is finally buried after dying of AIDS, his close friends Charlie and Anna find themselves at odds regarding the way he died. In the weekend that passes, Gavin's estranged family come to stay, which only adds more tension to the strained household. As Charlie tries to cling to his distant partner Frank, and Anna begins a sexual affair with Gavin's married brother, the pair realize now that Gavin has gone and there is no one to keep them together, or even keep them in line. The film is an exploration of human relationships, moral ambiguity and the consequences of difficult choices.



Walking on Water won five Australian Film Institute awards and the Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the 2002 Berlin International Film Festival.
