Dying at Grace, 10 May 2009
Author: cma87 from United States

Incredible. Heartbreaking. Eye-opening. No words can truly describe the quiet power of this documentary. People die everyday; we watch characters die on television. Yet, do we really know what death is? This film breaks down the wall of facade that films have created. And, as a result, we witness death in as raw and moving a form as possible: an inevitable entity that patiently works. Each individual interviewed - hospital staff, family member, patient - has a vital, sometimes tear-producing, prospective on Life, and answering with the wisdom, confidence and honesty that only years of existence could muster. You feel for each individual's life, and care all the more when you witness one of them slowly wither away. Although sad, the film convinces us as an audience to reflect, perhaps partly on Death. But, it actually has us ask about our own lives. How much have you lived? In what (or whom) do you believe? Who do you love? In all, "Dying at Grace" is a powerful documentary that does not accuse the audience of injustice or possess some political agenda. It is a film of quiet power and honesty, one that can move an audience member to tears and affirm Life, all at once. It asks questions, but it leaves them open, on the table, ready to be answered at some other time when the time is right. Just like Death, the film works gradually, patiently waiting for the audience member to reflect and consider his/her mortality. It is a must-see documentary for any human being.
