Equal parts blown away, heart broken and riveted
22 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

My husband and I watched this last night and were equal parts blown away, heart broken and riveted. The main character is enigmatic and heroic, mystifying and naïve. His journey made us laugh at him, embrace him, hold him in high esteem as an example of an independent spirit who deeply cares about the planet and the rights of the less fortunate, a man to admire and follow. And then the circle would start again while we shook our heads in disbelief, then awe, then sadness, glued to the story the entire way.

Each chapter of his life was drawn with deep love by the filmmaker who maintained an eagle eye for honesty and truth, exposing his father's deep flaws and glorious altruisms. The editing is top notch and the use of graphics completely stunning.

It was overall a beautiful, crumbling, healing look into the truth about a father, which mirrors in some ways the complicated relationships we all have with ours, the difference being that this father abandoned his family to help others in a profound and political way.

I wasn't prepared for how hard it would grab my attention and keep it.

If someone you met in a bar told you this story, you wouldn't believe it. Seeing is believing.
