Clever and well done.

At the Republican and Democratic conventions, people are asked a simple
question "tell us one nice thing about the opposition". Despite a very
simple concept, the film has some depth to it and has a lot to say
about the political climate in America today. The tone of the film
changes during its course. At first, the respondents all seem taken
aback by the question and many have rather sarcastic comments. Then,
some begin to say rather disingenuous things, like "I love how ________
makes it so easy for my party to win". Finally, towards the end, the
people all are able to come up with some realistic and nice comments
about the other party--but it sure looked like this part of the film
would never come! Because of this, it both says that the politicians
need to stop being so partisan and childish, though the end implies
maybe there is some hope....maybe.
Clever and well done, this little documentary has a lot to say.
