Excellently researched and presented
29 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This documentary is essential to understanding what happened that night including the context of the phenomenal media coverage that always accompanied the Princess of Wales in her latter years. The script is very well-written and the chaos of those hours is actually teased apart in the short - under an hour - film.

The viewer is not really told what to think. This is the point of view of the photographers.

I admired the exacting and comprehensive research. Photographers and their editors relate the changing perspective from the taking of pictures of a crash to the growing realization of the widening catastrophic implications.

No judgments are given, the only conclusion is the finding of the French courts. But I found this documentary fascinating, and satisfying in the sense

that, after all, when what the photographers relayed is said and assembled, that they were not wholly nor directly responsible for her death. I believe she was mortally wounded by the high-speed impact. It was only a matter of time longer or swifter depending on getting her out. Other viewers may find some other emphasis. The scene was one of complete disorientation. The crash took place in a tunnel and getting help in and out was hampered by the time of night, so many people around, and the compressed/compacted vehicle.

It is told very movingly - with very deep emotions simply and eloquently stated.
