Wonderful little film about something really wonderful and big
17 September 2005 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I can't believe no one has written about this wonderful documentary. It has been shown around the world for over a year by now, in many festivals and shown a few times in various TV channels around the world. It is an amazing story of how one man's dream becomes a reality, and a case where a movie has actually made a difference and changed reality. It may not have gotten its purpose achieving cease fires around the world, but the 21st of September is marked as the International Day of Peace. It is amazing that the declaration of the day at the UN took place on September 11th, 2001… A Must see movie that may actually may get you choked up towards the end.
