Painfully beautiful
7 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Saw this documentary at a Film Festival a few years back and have been haunted by it since. I can think of no other film that captures the vitality of an individual so well, and then carries the viewer along as that quality wanes and the person dies. A benchmark documentary about an individual who clearly left a positive mark on her friends.
