A work that aims at the depth of the human condition.
24 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Least of These" explores the human condition with sincerity. I think the story is a beautiful example of the good we are capable of. The director did a fantastic job of showing a point of view sometimes overlooked by our society.

The film was shot in a way that was appropriate for the story. There were no gratuitous camera motions, or extreme editing techniques. The setting of the story was a great choice and full of characters we have all met at some point in our lives. The lighting was well done and matched the mood of the film perfectly. It was simply a good story well told.

I had heard of the story before seeing the film and was happily surprised by the commitment of the director to bring the story to life.

I was inspired by this film and look forward to future works from this director.
