Great and fascinating documentary!
16 December 1998 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

If you like Christo's work, then you will be fascinated from the very first minute. They take you on a trip through the realisation of the project, including flashbacks on the project history and the time it needed (1984-1991) to be realised.
