Interesting, but fake.
27 August 2018 | by everskelly-49056See all my reviews

This is not a documentary, it's a regular movie. Actors do their job very well, but to call this a documentary is such a lie.. Everything is scripted, all the smallest details are well thought out and worked on. A lot of emotions are very unrealistic, some actions are just not how humans react or behave themselves. Well, this was done so that viewers would be deeply touched, shocked and so on, and it's ok. The movie is really nice for those who believe in everything they see. But don't be fooled - every little detail is scripted and actors do a good job. Reminds me of Blair's witch somewhat.
