A beautiful, moving experience
22 March 2001 | by (Boston, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This short film packs more emotion into 45+ minutes than most films pack into 145. The cinematography, editing, and audio of this film is as good as it gets. You'll immediately become a fan of Joseph Shabalala, the leader of the amazing Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the South African group best known for their incalculable contributions to Paul Simon's "Graceland" album in the mid-1980's. The beauty of this film, apart from the production values, lies in it's storytelling, transcending typical objectivity found all too often in documentaries similar in nature. As with all good documentaries, "On Tiptoe" takes you on a journey, making you feel as though you are side-by-side with the filmmakers. It is a journey you are likely never to forget.
