When I left the room I felt completed with the quality of this work.
7 November 2011 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I just saw this magnificent documentary on the "Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival 2011" based on ab smart project and very creative.

Filmed in a very dynamic where the goal and focus on the super harsh realities where "WOMAN" is the most discriminated even in today's 21st century.

we have an amazing editing where time laps are very original and portrait plans, which show us the personality of those characters, they are so strong in a way that makes it a remarkable work.

In the background the work and the iteration with the characters off the set before shooting, should be very intelligent , you can see that clearly cause they get very dis-inhibit to the point they are so real , automatic transforming the scenes in pure joy.

Women are Heroes - directed by JR - 28 millimeters . A project, that was not sponsored by any brand. My congratulations are superb.

A dynamic totally unlike anything I had seen before in Doc until today. When I left the room I felt completed with the quality of this work.
