Heart-Wrenching Must-See
29 April 2013 | by SnidgySee all my reviews

Mercy, Mercy is a great example of a documentary that puts the viewer in an emotional roller-coaster that speeds up throughout the journey and suddenly stops leaving you with a strong sense of despair. Katrine Rijs Kjaer is lucky, or one could say unlucky, enough to start filming a documentary on the adoption of two Ethiopian infants (siblings aged 4 and 2) by a Danish couple. The initial objective of the filmmaker appears to be making a straight-forward documentary about the subject of adoption in general. The couple, both psychotherapists of trade, at first leave the impression to be the best possible adoptive parents for Masho and her brother. The 'new parents' form a more than welcome escape from what is destined to be a life of poverty and uncertainty with their biological parents (who are both HIV positive). Throughout the film it becomes clear however that the escape has significant drawbacks making the viewer question whether adoption is always the preferred option and if especially Masho would not be better off back home. The last scenes especially had a very big emotional impact on me and are not for the faint-hearted (and/or people with kids that age such as myself). You will find yourself screaming to your television set. 10 out of 10.
