Valeria Bruni Tedeschi,
As a partial answer to first review, I have to say that you can't get much closer to what these experiences are like without trying the ayahuasca yourself, but wait, this must be done in the supervision of one of these shamans.
The surreal images are amazing, and a first. One must thank Kounen for giving us a visual glimpse (often accompanied by his own commentary) of what these experiences are about. The Shamans interviewed provide a way by which one could begin to understand their beliefs, also removing much of the exaggerations often found around the subject. Yes, we must be aware that there is A LOT MORE to it than images on the screen, but never less this movie treats the subject with respect. A hint for some of you: spirits are 'kind of' thoughts/perceptions.
