Good, yet sometimes a little bit shallow.
2 January 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Shallowness refers to contents, I don't have any special request for the presentation, this is a documentary meant to inform, not to impress.

Sad thing: I am old enough to remember how things were, at least in Romania, and we're actually not doing better. On the contrary, from the quality of food to the quality of beliefs and life itself, we lost a lot and we're bound to continue losing. Under the cover of getting rid of communism, we're actually getting rid of a lot more. But who cares, as long as there's cheap stuff to put in our mouths... As for the human right to water, I believe that the Nestle CEO aims to sell to us air in the next decade, and we're stupid and lazy enough to let him and others like him do exactly that. The only thing that's effortless on this planet is stupidity.

It looks that I'm rather tempted to comment the information released in the movie than the movie itself, and IMDb is not the place for that. I will then say only that sometimes more means less, in the end.
