"Surprisingly, a film that starts out very simple, gentle and human, and ends also human, but complex, intense and powerful. I thought I'd be a bored, that it might be either too trivial/hollywood (especially given the original kerfuffle with the casting), or too educational/documentary. I was WRONG. It's been a long time since I was left speechless at the end of a film. None of us could talk for a good 5-10 minutes after it ended."
