Great fun, about mass media influence on people
5 October 2004 | by (Delft, the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A lot of czechs actually became angry at the makers of this movie, they felt betrayed, but it also shows very well how new western style economies can be vulnerable and that appearances rule our lives.

See for yourself how consumers allow themselves to be fooled by 'the big companies' I am not necessarily an anti-globalist or anything, some of the big companies have actually made goods more accessible for everyone, but a large number of us should be more aware of the effect the media have on us.

Other than that the movie is just fun to watch and quite funny at many points.

nice one guys! at'zije konzument
