I had the pleasure of watching this film on the big screen at the 2009 New York Film Festival. The filmmakers at Freedom Film are fantastic. The story of how people in an immigrant ghetto in Holland decided to make a film about their daily life as Dutch people and how they would act as filmmakers. The response from the film makers and the film participants were amazing. The film was so different and realistic, as if you were there. You are in their shoes. I will definitely watch again.

First of all, this film is a lot more honest than most, I'm not surprised the topic is taken by this film. I agree that they are discussing the previous event in the Dutch society and that has an effect on this generation. I can't understand the controversy about this film and why some people doesn't like it. But I agree that this film is great and for sure it can help those that have to deal with this event and hopefully other people can relate to the topic. This film also helps us to understand the realness of the event and the people that were involved. So it's not about how is it possible to prevent such a tragedy, but how can we try to help the victims to live a normal life in our society. So I can't understand how this film is not great. I think people are actually affected and as we all know, it is very difficult to deal with such a tragedy. This is not something we can do anything about, but we can try to help and we can try to understand. And it was this movie that helped me a lot and to feel more connected with this issue. So I think this film was great and I strongly recommend it.

I have been making films for many years now and after watching this film i have had a new perspective on film-making. We see that the film-makers are no longer a privileged few who are making films for the rich and famous but are becoming just like us and this film is a good example of how the cinema can be used for a positive purpose. I recommend it to anyone who wants to make a film or to have a film-making class. The film is made by many different people in many different countries but it can be used to promote the cause of cinema.I hope it is a success.I am impressed with all the talents involved in this film and the way that all have worked together to make a film that can be seen in the coming years. For me it is a good example of how good films can be made by making them themselves.

If you're like me, you're probably familiar with the many moral debates around veganism. These debates have been ongoing for decades. We all have our opinions on why we are veg and we all have opinions on why we are not veg. For the most part, this film is not a comprehensive history of the debate. It is a very personal portrait of one vegan and her philosophies. I found this movie very refreshing, as the main character is actually doing the opposite of what most vegans do and that is not very nice. I was entertained by the film and the story. I would recommend it to anyone who has had a vegan lifestyle.

This is the first documentary I have ever watched about the 60s to the 80s Dutch music scene. It is the story of the influential people of the time. And how they were able to change the world. I can say that it is a very inspiring story. And the film is filmed in the Netherlands, which is probably the best choice for making a documentary. I was surprised to find out that it is still being made. Even though it is not as good as 'Nightlife' (which is my favorite Dutch film of all time) it is still very enjoyable. The story is told in an interesting way. Some things that can be interesting for people who don't know a lot about the music scene. The people who are in the center of the film are the musicians. We see how they have the ability to be really influential in their own way. It is also interesting to see how the musical world is really a 'luxury' for them. The film is not the best documentary ever made. But it is good. I enjoyed it very much.

If you are in your teens or twenties, there is a good chance you are in one of the aforementioned groups. You probably have friends who do not drink alcohol. I myself have been a student in university with friends who have been heavily involved in binge drinking. This documentary is the opposite of many of the documentaries on drugs and alcohol on the web. It is honest and shows how the normal do not always have a better life than the drug addicts. I highly recommend this film for anyone who has ever been around the average of people who are heavily involved in drugs or alcohol. This film will not only get you thinking about your friends, but also about the lives of the people who are heavily involved in drug use.

To start off with, the movie is not a documentary, it is a documentary about a journey and how it was made. People will obviously hate it, but it is the truth, so the worst it will be, is people hating the people that made it. This is a lesson to everyone that has seen a movie, to do your research before watching it. I understand there are some "blame it on the director" type comments but seriously, you can't blame it on the director, it is the director's fault, or it was the director's fault, or it was the director's fault. The movie isn't about the director, the director is just a man. It's about the journey and the journey is made by the people that made the trip. It is to make us realize that, "we are responsible for making that journey, we are responsible for the decisions we make, and we are responsible for not being able to continue".

It is a pity that the producer of this documentary has chosen to remain silent about the truth behind the murder of her father. The village of Spijkershof, near Duitsin, is a nice place, where everyone has their own roots. The grandparents of the girl were active in the local orphanage, which takes in orphans from the local community. As a result, it has been possible to connect the girl's parents and grandparents. I understand that these connections are not always possible, but nevertheless this documentary is a good starting point for them to form a deeper relationship. My vote is ten, and the votes from the rest of the country are four and one.

The documentary is a must-see for those who value themselves as human beings. The way that men look at the human body is just as much a testimony as the way that women look at it. It's hard to find people that believe what you say in this film, but I can assure you that people do not judge men and women alike by how they look, but rather by how they are. I'd be willing to bet that men, by far, do not believe what you say. This film is both a must-see for men and women alike and a teaching tool for all to learn from. The first time I watched it I was just a little bit disgusted by what I saw, but the more I watched it the more I realized just how amazing it is. I just hope to see more films like this, and I will definitely recommend this film to anyone that wants to see the human body for what it is.

First of all I want to say that I don't really want to get into this about the story of the real WBC. As a historical movie, it is very well done. But I think this is not a historical movie at all. Its more of a documentary. I think the film makers knew this as the movie shows a lot of interviews with ex WBC members. You know how the Nazi guards told them that they would all be killed in the end? They all said they knew it. You also hear about a certain class of guards that tortured a lot of Jewish people and raped women. They told the guards that they were all dead. They were told that they were all dead in the end. If you are really interested in the WBC, you would definitely want to watch this. It is worth the watch.

The facts on this site are the facts, no matter what the press may tell you. If you want to see the history of "Kiwi Headhunters" you can view the Internet Movie Database. Otherwise, I suggest you read the book "We Got Hunting" by John Allen Nelson and keep in mind that it is the movie that created the history of "Kiwi Headhunters". See this movie on your own terms, and you will see what really happened. The entire "Kiwi Headhunters" story is a "concoction" and is not really the history of any specific group or individual.

On this day of the 2nd of October, it is my sincere pleasure to present the official film of the World AIDS Conference. A comprehensive overview of the issues that affect the lives of millions of people in every country and in every part of the world. The film was carefully researched, in-depth interviews with expert witnesses and experts and an amazing selection of local and international experts. I will say no more to try to find a loophole. Just do not hesitate and see it. You will not regret it. I want to thank the director of this film for a job well done and for providing an opportunity to educate the public about this issue. Without this film, many lives could have been saved and many times more. One of the most precious gifts of life is the opportunity to know and to love and to support the ones we care about. We have a chance to discover the people, places and stories that touch us deeply and that are usually ignored by the media. We can learn about the "silent genocide" of millions of people that will only be remembered and that will be denied. To save one life is more important than to save the next one, if we can. And that is the message that the film conveys.

I am stunned. This documentary was very well done. It looked at the most important issues in the world, in the context of being a father, a son, a brother, a husband, a friend, a partner, a colleague and a friend. The film also looked at issues that concern the majority of people in the world, in the context of the so-called 'world economic crisis' of 2008. I am so glad to have found it. A must see.

Just got back from the Berlin premiere. Remarkable, yet stunning. The cinema is a canvas on which the lives of the children are transformed. The photographs are real, yet they have no other agenda than to tell a story. The only difference between these pictures and any other is that the images are pictures, not words. This film is a labor of love and a testament to the power of the internet and the willingness of its users to give their time to share their stories with others.

A beautiful story and experience to watch. As a music lover, I can't help but watch this film and all of the other films about music. The pain is not just music, but that everyone should feel, and see the world for the first time. If you are not a music lover, and only watch this film because of it, then I recommend that you see a film that speaks to you about your life, your problems, your passions, your thoughts. As a movie lover, I don't recommend this film for a viewer who doesn't like music. I recommend it to everyone. It is a film that you cannot see once, you must see it, and again, and again.

I have been writing about this documentary for quite some time and it is finally done. The only good part was the music which I have been trying to find on CD so I could listen to it for many years. I also have to mention the way the movie was made. It is very much different from the usual documentary that I have seen on the Internet. I cannot wait to watch it again. I have never seen such a good documentary with so many beautiful images and musical pieces.

This film was a movie I had been waiting for. I'm not a big fan of lifestyle documentaries. But I think this one was good. It was so well made that it really gave me the energy to move on to the next thing. I'm glad I got it. If you're a die-hard of what the world is doing to you, you should see this movie. If you have seen or read about something in your life that you really feel is wrong, you should see this film. This is a film that will change your life and it's also a film that will make you think.

I am a big fan of Ronan's films, and after seeing the documentary, I am now a fan of his work as a whole. The fact that this documentary was made in one day, without any advertising or publicity, is quite incredible. As you can see from the title, Ronan is a big fan of travelling in his van. I agree with the comments about the driving, it is just not the same as in a BMW. The same can be said about the use of the van, the fact that it is self-sufficient in most parts of the country, and how Ronan just shows his talent and skill in just one day is just amazing. The title of the documentary is pretty good, but there is no need for a title like this, as it is not a case of Ronan saying: 'I want to drive you to your next destination.'. The title has been chosen by Ronan's friends and family, to highlight his love for the Van. It is a gift from Ronan's family, that is not very common, as Ronan usually makes his own gifts. I am not sure that I would recommend this documentary to the average viewer, but Ronan is still one of the greatest living Van Van drivers of all time.

I was forced to watch this film when I was 14 and I have to say that I have never watched anything quite like this. This documentary was a huge wake-up call. I was very young when this happened and I knew nothing of the issues that were discussed in this film. I can only imagine the feelings these men must have been going through and the lengths they had to go to to get out of the town. I was shocked by what I saw. It was just a film that gave me hope for humanity in the most obvious way possible. I have watched this film a number of times and I am sure that I will watch it again in the future.

I have read the book, and I have no idea how anyone can think the film is horrible. I saw the film, and it made me laugh the entire time. It was so good, and I can't stop laughing. I think I'm the only person in the world who thinks that. I'm going to see it again, and I'm going to tell everyone I know to see it, and they'll know what I'm talking about. The movie is the greatest, the best, and the funniest thing I have ever seen. I love it, and I know that everyone who watches it loves it. I really hope the book is still as good as the movie. It's the best thing I've ever seen. I think the only reason that people can't like the movie is because they don't understand what makes this movie so great.

I just watched this movie a few days ago, and was stunned by it. I love documentaries and usually find them frustrating and boring, but this movie, alone, was a complete and utter delight. It shows the suffering of the earth, and shows it in a way that is actually shocking. It does a great job at showing that we are just part of the natural world. It was a fantastic, and in my opinion, inspiring movie. I definitely recommend it, and would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a real documentary about the earth.

The opening is a good lesson of how to make a movie. It's a very interesting documentary that explains everything about Dutch film making. The second half, however, shows the results of this documentary. It's like a full-length documentary in a movie. It is very different to a documentary. You can see how much effort goes into making a movie in the second half, but it is so very small compared to the effort of the first half. The movie is in English. That is, it's not just a documentary but it's a full-length movie. You have to be a fan of Dutch cinema or a Dutch movie fan to understand it. In the end, the documentary is just a very good movie that is well worth watching. It explains everything about Dutch film-making.
