Inspired film making
5 July 2005 | by ian_haleSee all my reviews

This is simply one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. The Way in which the director gained the trust of people living in such dire and dangerous circumstances is as amazing as it is the way he managed to get them to open up about their hopes and dreams for the future and show them in such a humanistic way. By the end the affinity you have for the characters is very strong and you have an understanding of not only them but also what life is like living a life without believing there any possibilities.For me it showed that all people regardless of the surroundings they live in are primarily the same in their basic needs and aspirations and the way the director allows us into these peoples lives is what documentaries are all about.
