An Eye Opening Film
1 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this film in New York and was totally blown away by it. I had no idea about the extent, breadth and scope of globalization and the consequences it has on peoples' lives all over the world. It pushed me to think beyond one's Americentric perspective on the job market. I think one of the most commendable things about this film is the filmmaker's sense of humor which makes this an extremely watchable film. I loved the animation sequences and the way they form a wonderful contrast and juxtaposition to the archival images. I also liked the personal diary and travelogue structure of the film. Knowing the filmmaker's stance and position on the subject, and her witty observations adds a lot to the film. It is a complex film that presents arguments from all fronts and leaves one asking questions in the end. Four thumbs up for this one as it made me think and reflect long after I watched it (besides the fact that it was quite entertaining for a documentary). I recommend this film highly to anyone who wants to know more than just what we hear about this subject in the news media.
