Well-made documentary
28 February 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

An insightful documentary with lots of shaded ideas. Thankfully it is not a simple-minded ovation as is so common in this genre. All kinds of themes are interwoven and brought up for inspection: political, social, musical and more. Highly recommended.
