The Best Documentary I've Ever Seen
23 January 2003 | by thesopranosSee all my reviews

I have seen many movies and documentaries that have touched an emotional chord in me. Nothing comes close to the emotions I felt watching this. I have never cried so hard over something I've watched. How brave and generous they were to go ahead with their documentary of their first born child, even when the unthinkable happened. My heart goes out to them.
