A great glimpse into a genuine piece of human drama
11 July 2005 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

You rarely come across documentaries that completely startle you even though the message is about life. Jan Krawitz made a wonderful documentary that should be used as a strong teaching tool for tolerance. You can't help feeling bad for the little people that are portrayed in this film, but then again, the whole idea of the film is to show they are content with their lives, that they don't feel bad about their existence. They even bring up a broader topic that will definitely be talked about for future generations: genetic engineering.

What will happen to little people or mentally handicapped people? Sadly, the documentary didn't have enough time to delve more deeply into the subject, for the true purpose was to show people that we shouldn't feel bad for them. Sure life is tough when you live in a world built for tall people, but the documentary really demonstrates how the people have worked to make their lives as normal as possible. Hopefully more people will get to view this documentary.
