Storyline

NOBODY'S PERFECT is a documentary which shows Niko von Glasow's search for eleven people who, like him, were born disabled due to the side effects of the drug thalidomide. These eleven people are also prepared to be photographed for a calendar, and photographed naked, allowing people who would otherwise glance furtively at thalidomiders to take a good, long look. In the process Niko discovers a range of fascinating characters who have learned to lead an impressively "normal" life, which incorporates their disability. With black humour, and paying no heed to political correctness, NOBODY'S PERFECT gives a portrait of twelve extraordinary personalities who react with curiosity, enthusiasm or horror (like Niko himself) to the project.

A telling film...
12 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really didn't know what to expect when I started watching this. I'm sure that there was a normal amount of gawk-factor involved. That passed very quickly as the psyches of the participants were laid bare.

What impressed me most were two distinct realities. First, I learned a good bit about the terrible effects of the Thalidomide drug, and also volumes about the effects of deformities on the people who suffer them.

Second, I got to see the "victims" learn from each other about the issues that they were saddled with and how that helped empower and draw them together.

I do hope that the firm which developed the drug will reach out to the victims and provide support for them.
