The truth about what the world thinks about America
20 March 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This documentary is more interesting to Americans than others, since Americans are the ones to know the least about what the rest of the world thinks about America and Americans.

It's a project where the film team is travelling around the world, to China, India, Palestine, Canada, Japan a.s.o. to get the local's opinions about the World currently most powerful and arrogant country.

Americans doesn't know much about what the rest of the world think about them, nor so they really care? Well this crew do, and they get to know.

Interesting, and a good idea, but as mentioned, mostly for Americans. A good film to use for education.
