"Mindblowing if you excuse me"
30 October 2010 | by SyrtahSee all my reviews

The quote at the end of the movie ("Mindblowing if you excuse me") describes it best: This film is a wonderful documentary with a lot of scientists talking but not lecturing. Despite whatever you might think about the people shown who claim not to eat or drink in years, the film takes you on a very pleasant and comfortable journey into the areas of life where science has to admit phenomena without being able to explain them. And further. And further into your own imagination of what might be possible in this world and what not.

The director admits that the ending is a bit one-sided but well, it's his opinion on the whole subject and you're free to follow or not.

The most important fact for me was the stunning camera-work, the very clever editing and a wise choice in the references/people which appeared in the film.
