A wonderful documentary
4 January 2008 | by diederik-stolkSee all my reviews

Simply a wonderful documentary.

This film is a simple, humble, intelligent and beautifully crafted work of art. A must see for everyone who is interested in people stories about human transformation and growth of the individual.

The careful selection of the 4 interviewees (the protagonists), the use of Greek mythology and puppetry leaves the viewer astonished and amazed right up to the end. I can not stress that the film's brilliance is in its constructiveness and the narrative's simplicity.

A small sensible documentary that one could class along such other great documentaries as Être et Avoir, Capturing the Friedmans, Titicut Follies. Definitely,One of the great documentaries of the year!

It is unnecessary to say more, watch be amazed, moved and touched.
