An unflinching look at a rare disease
27 February 2006 | by (Metro D.C.) – See all my reviews

Documentary filmmaker Melody Gilbert has created a small gem of a film about a rare congenital disease known as congenital analgesia. Only about a hundred people worldwide are known to have this diagnosis. People with this disorder can feel no pain, and are prone to numerous injuries and accidents that can be disfiguring as well as lethal.

The film tells the story of Three-year-old Gabby from Minnesota, 7-year-old Miriam from Norway and 10-year-old Jamilah from Germany. Their stories are told with unflinching truthfulness and a deliberate lack of sentimentality. The courage of the girls and their families in spite of their great difficulties is truly uplifting.

The movie was easy to watch, it seemed to end too soon. It would be nice to see a sequel on how these delightful girls are doing in a few years.
