I really enjoyed watching this film, be it now a true doc or not. The experiment really happened and that's the only thing that matters. Being a minimalist myself, I can totally relate with the movie's core message and I find it wonderful that someone did dare to take up this subject and make it a the central theme in a film.
The film is a sweet, slow story with a good portion of self irony and many great insights. A must-watch for everybody who's attracted by minimalism but doesn't dare to live it. The soundtrack is nice and the camera work excellent. The film is itself a tribute to minimalism, because it tries to reduce the number of cuts and scenes to the bare necessary. This stands in wonderful contrast to what we are served from Hollyweird these days, where the frame frequency has increased tremendously in the last 20 years, the sound effects have become more dramatic, and constant action is the only premise. How refreshing to be able to just watch a scene or camera angle for more than a few seconds. A great piece of work!
