A review of an excellent film
14 April 2000 | by (Normal, IL) – See all my reviews

I watched this film in a college course this semester. Along with watching the film the class read the book, _Circle of Love Over Death_. I found the film to be an excellent complement of the text. It gave wonderful testimonials by the mothers whose children had disappeared. The director did a great job of compiling different women to emphasize the theme. If you've read the book, see the movie. If you've seen the movie, read the book.
