Fun and thought-provoking
8 July 2013 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Alan Berliner continues to make some of the most quirky, interesting and personal documentaries around, often bringing a great deal of humor to what could be over-serious material.

Here, he examines the meaning and value of one's own name, and the strange reality that almost all of us share our names, a key part of our sense of identity, with many others. As part of this exploration, Berliner invites all the "Alan Berliner"s he can find to a dinner, and ends up with 13 namesakes at one meal, including the French filmmaker Alain Berliner, who did the much acclaimed "Ma Vie En Rose", which the documentary film-maker got sick of being congratulated for. This is a fun film, but one that also provokes deeper thought about the meaning of names and identity.
