Superbly Compelling Documentary
3 December 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful film about incredibly interesting people living in an unusual place. Tolz clearly knew how to get at the deeper emotions of his subjects and how to capture some truly extraordinary stories and lives on film. The film is full of touching moments as well as outrageously funny ones. Absolutely worth looking out for - an absolute gem of a film...don't be fooled by the poster that makes it look boring!
