Very Interesting Documentary
23 January 2013 | by caratoolSee all my reviews

I had heard a lot about this film from independent film sources and managed to catch it in a small cinema on its German debut in Berlin last year.

I walked in almost by accident but was really happy I did, because the film touched me quite deeply.

I had never heard about what happens to these poor kids and think the film has an important message to educate people.

It is also not a thing that happens only in Africa, but also in Mexico, Latin America and even the USA!

My brother was approached by a fake agent here in LA, but when he asked us for money my father said no! It was hard for our family and my brother but we think it was the right thing to do, and after seeing this film we were certain!

Even though the subject matter is not directly something I would choose, once sitting at the titles it was absorbing, exciting and very interesting!

I would suggest anyone who likes human experience documentaries should see this film!
