I was recommended this documentary by a friend and am I glad I was directed towards it. It had me totally gripped from the first take and I can only agree with what the other reviewers felt on watching it. It is both emotionally and visually stunning. As for Garnet what a character. Why he would ever see himself as a failure is beyond me. The depth of feeling which he portrayed for both his Mother and his passions was priceless. He is a real gem in life's rich tapestry. I wish him peace and contentment in whatever the future has in store for him. It was a documentary worth its own weight in gold in so many ways.Brilliant stuff Ed I look forward to your next documentary.
