A look into the youth in 20th century
8 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm only giving 8 stars because I feel this documentary didn't quite achieve it's purpose. It's intention is to show the growth of the youth culture in the 20th Century and it does show this but it seems to get lost in the telling.

It shows youth at labor, youth in politics, youth at war. And that became a problem for me because I see the youth culture as a targeted element for merchandising and capitalist profits. Well this documentary does show that element but it is so overshadowed by historical events it's easy to lose focus on it's growth while also showing the social & political changes in the western world from 1900 to 1950. Plus the youth at leisure is limited almost exclusively to the 'moneyed class'!

Otherwise this is a fine documentary and well told.
