User Reviews

Well filmed documentary really gave me something to think about
26 April 2010 | by beyer-sebastianSee all my reviews

This documentary is extremely well filmed at locations all over the world. Before saying more about it, you should know I watched the original German version, so that one is what I'm talking about.

Based on the book by German member of parliament Hermann Scheer, who is also one of the protagonists of this movie, Carl A. Fechner shows, in which ways alternative energies can be used today. As far as I am aware he is correct on the facts, the only thing I disliked is, that it is a slightly biased movie. You get to hear a lot from people who develop or distribute these non-fossile energy forms, but there is only one person speaking for the other side.

Nevertheless the movie gives those a voice whose arguments are often underrepresented in a discussion that has been going on for a while on a topic that needs some action. The sooner the better. If you are a stubborn conservative you will dislike the movie, any open minded person should definitely see it.
