Angels are sometimes dusty.
29 November 2014 | by george-koenSee all my reviews

Yes, this documentary is now 7 years old. Yes, there is a sadness to it and so it should be. Someone reviewed this a while ago and essentially ended the review feeling he/she was left with an intense (my words) feeling of sadness, and as I read into it it, a sense of hopelessness. I cannot agree with that as all I saw was the hope granted these children by the Cloete family. The solid methodology employed by Marion is textbook pure. Children were taught to grieve, taught to express frustration but were always taught that, in a healthy fashion, they can accept sickness and death, and still move on in a wholesome fashion. Rather then being left in a state of sadness, I left with an empowering sense of hope.
