A touching worldwide trek
25 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has everything a view could ask for. There are moments of humor, suspense, surrealism, drama, and introspection, all within in minutes of each other. I was amazed at how well each of the individual directors worked together to make a cohesive, fun, and thought provoking story. It's evident that everyone involved worked hard to keep a singular message and POV in mind, and the effort paid off. All the vignettes flowed together seamlessly, yet each managed to have a unique, individualized look and feel, and that takes a lot of work and care. Some of the vignettes worked better for me than others, but that will probably be the case for each viewer. If a segment doesn't work for you, hang in there...another one will come along that will draw you right back into the overall story. I won't give away the ending, but I will say that the final minutes of dialog will move you and keep you thinking long after you're done viewing this film. Bravo to the filmmakers and to everyone involved for creating such a warm and innovative work.
