Unbelievably Moving
2 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is such a fantastic documentary. Gives you a whole new appreciation for teachers, especially the five portrayed here. I hope they (the teachers) stay with their work as they are obviously working from a deep passion and calling. And for the same reasons, I hope these filmmakers keep doing the work they're doing.

Thank God for PBS and who ever funds movies like this. Good stuff. Watch if you get a chance. An excellent documentary. This movie is impossible to forget. Great, great, great. Students should watch this movie at the beginning of every year. Not only to help them appreciate the good teachers they have, but also to understand that there are a few weak links in the chain as well.
