a great piece for laymen and stakeholders alike
23 November 2007 | by reskat-1See all my reviews

I have just seen this movie and I want to see it again and again. If there is one fault with it, its the fact that Hules tried to squeeze too much into too little. Granted, he's got a lot to say, but I could just as well imagine this film as a mini-series. And that's because, like with a good book, you just want to read on and on. Ninety-some minutes are simply not enough. It leaves you hunger for more. That, I suppose is the intentional genius of writer-director Hules, who even, as far as I know, had the pleasure of editing 900 hours of footage into this piece. The miracle is that the movie is still coherent and understandable to everyone, even if you were born decades after the events, on a different continent. I recommend you see it, but I'm warning you that you'll actually need to pay very close attention all the way through! Bring your brain, and, as another reviewer suggested, also bring tissue.
