Highs and Lows
15 September 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Slightly unfocused and meandering, but nonetheless very illuminating and interesting documentary on bipolar disorder, hosted with an understandably personal touch by Stephen Fry whose at his most tactful without reserving his wittiness.

Some more scientific interviews would've been welcome, but the range of opinions on manic depression draw an adequate picture of that particularly complex illness.

Not quite as touching as it's meant to be, but still worth two hours of your time.
