This film is not filled with cynicism as are most documentaries about the help we send to developing countries. I love Sean Penn's sensitive and honest testimonial. The pictures are lovely. Some scenes seem to short. Some scenes about what was going on in the camps could have been a bit more developed. But if you are looking for a realistic look at what development work is all about, this is a good reference. There is no big drama other than the initial earthquake shot. Donna Karan could have been a been developed a bit more. I loved the reconstruction of the market scene. The music is truly lovely. One of the strong elements of this movie. Especially the Haitian signer songwriter title music recounting the earthquake. I thought I was going to see a bit more of the drama - inside the brokenness of the haitian people. But the driver was a very genuine character that you can get attached to. I recommend this movie.
