The definition of being a person, of being human...
31 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

This film is a definite masterpiece that can surely bring some pretty deep feelings in everyone's mind. Even tough I am not fully competent of understanding each and every one of those feelings I did learn quite a valuable lesson: Individually we are different but there is only one whole we can make and that is humanity itself. The movie consists of stories, little life stories that through their simplicity altogether with the atmosphere created by the people themselves make a great place to understand what life really is and how life differs from one person to another. It really forms an opinion on every single aspect of life like: poverty, love, feelings and death. The overall quality of the movie is amazing, not only by how the general structure is build but also from an emotional perspective. Moreover, watching each and every one of those people telling their stories gives you an opportunity to catch a glimpse in their life. Combining that with the wonderful collection of music and sceneries you are persuaded to endorse the idea of life thriving everywhere and in every condition. The stories are said through an interview form, the focus being strictly on the teller. The black background and the silence that surrounds gives a very deep view in those people lives, but here is where Yann Arthus- Bertrand's genius comes on. He makes us see and understand those ideas right from the people' s mind and perspective. To sum up, I can definitely recommend this documentary to absolutely anyone who wants to take a moment and enjoy the vastness of life and world. One small detail I want to say is that I have seen the three part version which in my opinion is very suitable to many people because it give you time to understand each one very easily.
