This is the first feature by David Bowie, and it is also the first film that he has directed. It is definitely a Bowie film. There are some strong moments, and the camera work is great. The story is simple, and the voiceover narration by Bowie is excellent. I particularly liked how he connected himself to various local cultures, and how the sub-titles translate to the surrounding culture. The music, although it is not by Bowie, is great. I found it unique, and really suited the overall atmosphere. A very good film, with some great moments, and some excellent music. 7/10

This documentary directed by Robert Beaven is not just about cigarette smoking, it is about something deeper: It is about hope and love. It is about dying young and finding a place in heaven. It is about friends who take a risk and try to make a change. It is about everything that makes life worth living, the smell of flowers and the beauty of the earth, the kindness of strangers, the simple things that make us human, the joy of simple things. It is not about politics or racism or ethics. It is about hope. And as you will hear over and over again: hope is an active ingredient in this life. It is how we are able to recover our minds, how we are able to grow and strengthen in our life. We are never out of it. The stars here are French people who are trying to give hope to the world. They show us the effects of smoking and how this cause is directly related to suicide rates, drug abuse and violence. It is a dark picture that we are not supposed to see. I really appreciate this documentary. It is important and it shows the positive things that are still possible in this life. It is good. And it is worth watching. It is worth watching.

I found this film during my last year at university and it stuck with me for quite a while. The film concerns the life of the women of the United States, and the struggles they faced during the 20th century. The film is a good mix of documentary footage and interviews with the women. I've learned a lot about women from this film, and it has given me a new appreciation for all of the women that made the US a country, and a great force for change in the world. It is a film you can watch over and over again, and it will become a part of your life.

I remember I had a reading-led class of English students in my English department, and some of them got to see this film first before they could understand the music. I must admit that the viewing of this film was a total waste of time - we all understood it at the time, but now, I don't think we can be as confident about it as we used to be. I understand that these people had the good sense to read the book, but this film is not much better than an average children's book. I could actually say that the music by Jacques Durrenmatt was better than the music in the book. I think the music in the film was a bit too heavy - especially the driving part of the music was just really annoying. I must say that I really liked the ending - the film is not at all easy to watch. This is a film that I would not recommend to anyone over 7 years of age. I believe the film is suitable for all ages, and I was expecting that I could understand the music, but I still couldn't.

This is a documentary about a small Italian town that was 'fallen' from the Germans as part of World War II. The town's strong tradition of gentrification and gentrification by gentrification seems to have made everything else a little worse for the townspeople. Now the Italians are renting out buildings they have already occupied, making the same amount of money as they had, and the shops they had are closing up, while the windows of the buildings that were occupied by the Germans are being raised above the street level, and windows that were usually windowless are now windowed in. The documentary follows the life of the residents of the town, including the residents themselves, as they face the inevitable inevitable. They confront the inevitable, while their generation is seen as uniting against the inevitable and it seems that the townspeople are really just reacting to the inevitable. The German influence is also noticed here. With the German Girl's song, the Germans try to make the Italians pay for all the German-run businesses. So they raise the taxes to a point where the average Italian's income is the same as the average German's income. The Italian's buy the businesses, but that doesn't bother the Germans, as it was only a start. And then the German schools are closing down, and the Italian families who formerly took the students there and still use the schools are leaving. So the Italians can't afford to pay the taxes, and now they want to move out, at which point the Germans go on strike. If you're going to rent a home in a town where the Germans are moving in, why not sell the place? Instead of being loyal to the old town, they just want to be a party to the new town. The Germans have more money, so the Italians have more money, and the Italians want to live in the newer town, and the Germans want to stay where they were. The Germans get more money. And this is a film about gentrification, but its about gentrification of the Italians. So while it's mostly a documentary, one of the things it's really about is the Italian's, their experience in the new town, and how they have to make the best out of it.

This is a movie made up of interviews with John Lennon and Yoko Ono. It is a documentary, but it's not a documentary. There are about eight or ten interviews and the order of the interviews is different. The interviews are all in the order of the songs Lennon and Yoko recorded. In the documentary, they are in chronological order. Ono talks about John Lennon's first encounter with his mother and then talks about how he had a relationship with Yoko, and then talks about her connection to Yoko. It is interesting to see how they are playing them in the end. In the documentary, John Lennon says that Yoko Ono was a genius. It is interesting to hear John Lennon make that statement. I think the only thing that I didn't like about this film was that it was very slow. It had no music for a long time and I didn't know if the interviews were going to be in chronological order, and if they would have other interviews. All in all, I would recommend this film to anybody, especially to Beatles fans. It's well done and it's worth seeing.

The French film "Le Glace et le Ciel" (Good-bye and Life's Little Things) is about a socialist children's book shop run by an inventor named Clovis (a very sexy Nicolas Thivierge) who sells beautiful toys, books and games. This life is not too bad for these orphans at first and they have a good time until their leader discovers a secret about his employer that ends up giving his toys to the little ones. As a result the shop is destroyed and is destroyed by the new owner's son (the handsome Dominique Pagenot) who shoots the former employees and steals all of the toys and games from the shop. The children who are now orphaned have to fight for their lives and try to find a way to survive. The movie is all about family and about the inner struggle of children, who have to find a way to survive. When they find a way, they have to fight for their lives and keep up a good life. "Le Glace et le Ciel" is not a very special movie for the French audience. However, I don't know what would be the first impression to the American audience who usually likes "high-brow" movies, especially for the French ones. However, if you are French, you must watch this movie. The actors were very good, especially Dominique Pagenot, who I believe is one of the most beautiful women in the world. I recommend this movie to all of my friends and to all of my family.

A French documentary-style documentary, told in a completely unstructured and random way, with a half-dozen interviews from various people who are actually involved in this documentary, from Paul, the film director, to someone who is a supporter of the film. It starts in the beginning, a conversation with Paul, where he is talking about his last scene (about the weathering of a Greek icon on the wall of the Louvre), where he says the words 'The title is this film. The director is that director. The subject is this film. We are that subject.' It's one of those interesting conversations, with some great moments, but by the end of the film, it's really all very simple, nothing interesting, nothing that you can't find a good way to say: 'Yeah, I saw that. Yeah, I know that.'

When I first heard about this documentary, I thought it was just another case of a French saying. After watching it I realized the film really wasn't about any specific idea or a specific individual. It was about how religion can influence one's life. It deals with various religions such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. I've never understood the French term "altar" which usually means a building that contains a stage. The first thing you notice about this film is the musical score. The music is composed by Alexandre Desplat. The documentary is very enlightening. I'd recommend this film to anyone interested in history or religion.

This is a great film, one that I absolutely recommend. It tells the story of the founding of the Paris Commune, the event that will ultimately lead to the demise of the ruling class. I highly recommend seeing this film.

What I liked most about this movie was how it was very different and made an attempt to showcase a beautiful experience for both the viewer and the elephants. Having worked in and around zoos, I know how beautiful the elephants are, and how much they suffer from disease and abuse. I also knew that I would like this movie because it was a documentary, with narration and some interviews with the elephants' owners and caretakers. Also, I have a great interest in animals and how they are treated in zoos. I do believe this is an important message that needs to be sent to both the public and to the zoos. I believe that this documentary is not only important to the elephant, but it is important to all of us.

I went to see this documentary on DVD, and I really didn't like it. It wasn't bad, but it was definitely boring and could've been better, if it hadn't taken so long to tell the story. It was narrated by Gianni Agnelli, who said that he used to be the best cameraman, and how he became addicted to documenting events, especially the music videos. But now he simply just goes through everything with the music. I don't really have anything else to say, but you should really go to see it, because it's a really good documentary, and probably the most interesting documentary I've ever seen.

While I am a fan of the Grateful Dead, I did not know that the Grateful Dead was a founding member of the Eagles until much later. This documentary is quite good. There are many insightful interviews with key players and several key moments in the history of the band. This is definitely an overall worth-watching documentary. Although it has a "feel" like a documentary on the Grateful Dead, it is actually more of a general history of the band. It talks about how and why the band started, how it went from a small band to a multi-faceted juggernaut, and the fight and how the band survived the crash and was able to keep on working. Many interviews are made about their early and their decline after the inception of the band. Also there are some behind the scenes and anecdotes about the recording of the albums. Overall this is a very good and engaging documentary.

I found the piece very well done, well organized. Very convincing portrayal of the Quebecois culture, including the schools, art, literature, clothing, fashion, music, etc. I also liked the viewpoints from different historians that the production director and actors took, as I'm sure many others will find this very informative and entertaining. The use of a sequence of recent documentaries and excerpts from a great selection of interviews gives you an interesting and informative experience of the reality that Quebecers have been dealing with, over a period of many years. As a Quebecer and a high school history teacher, I could relate very well with the information presented on the heritage, culture, life and thinking of the people of Quebec. I did feel, however, that some of the representations of the early 1900s were a bit weak and didn't allow me to connect more with the people portrayed. Still, I did find this documentary a valuable tool for learning about Quebec's cultural heritage.

This short film is a best-of-this-year-best-of-the-year festival in London and is easy to see why. The two leading actors are Roman Polanski and Eileen Atkins. They come from quite different worlds but both have chosen the right path. This film has a very serious message about the exploitation of animals by humans. Most of the time it is not made explicit, just seen in their eyes and in the way they look, which is strange, and sometimes it is not shown. This documentary also shows how a real documentary could be made, with the actors actually telling their personal stories, using what they can of a camera. Polanski plays the family reporter for the New York Daily News and discusses his "UFO experience". Atkins has been in the 'convicted' section for a decade, as the owner of a local zoo, but this has recently gone to court, and she is now on probation. That is how people who do not believe in 'UFO' documentaries could enjoy this. They could also find something of interest in the way the two act on camera, their voices, the way they look at each other, in what they say and how they say it. The film also tells us how the two friends managed to get invited to the top 100 list of the Guardian's "People's 100" list, with a few other documentaries. The other documentary is in Arabic and was made by four Algerians, who are now in Syria, but the story is mainly about the "UFO", and the way the Algerian refugees react to it. They try to help the refugees, but it is never easy.

In this film-maker's first documentary, we follow Jacques COULARDEAU, an 84-year-old French writer and director, as he reveals his views on the "New Cinema", where the budget is the most important, the star is the director, and the human beings portrayed as secondary to the global market. In this way, he explains why, after "Les aventures de Beppo", he will never direct again. We also meet the filmmakers of the New Wave, such as Roger Vadim, Helene Beart, Joan Rameau and Raphael Bernstein, all of whom have expressed similar opinions. COULARDEAU starts off this documentary with an interview with Jean-Luc Godard, on the set of his final film, which he admits to feeling "a little bit sad". We then see COULARDEAU on the set of "The Three Lives of Robert Benton", a film about the genre that has defined many directors' careers, where the star, the director, and the actor are reduced to insignificance. One of the questions COULARDEAU asks Godard is why Godard would need to make a film about Beppo, and one can see the arch-conservative director's opinions on the importance of starpower. COULARDEAU then ends with a discussion of the New Wave, with Godard, Robert Benton, Mariel Hemingway, and Tadeusz Feldkamp all speaking, and I find the film fascinating, and COULARDEAU's insight as a filmmaker, enlightening.

For the first half, I was very entertained. The second half left a lot to be desired. The movie should have gone for a more in depth treatment of the subject, and it wasn't until a close to the end that I really got what was happening and what it meant. The movie did have a lot of style and pretty shots, but I didn't find any in the entire movie, which I felt was a waste of time. The DVD was nicely packaged, but the movie never kept you entertained. I did want to be entertained, but it was a terrible waste of time and money.

As if it wasn't enough that we don't have a lot of history to get a handle on France's relationship with Germany. Now, we have this documentary. It's a wonder that most documentaries of this kind are mostly bad or just bad. This one is not. The film is based on interviews with some of the more interesting people in the country's history, and it's nice to see some more personality in the French personality. Charles de Gaulle, Winston Churchill, François Mitterand, Emile Zola, Dreyfus, Albert Camus, Luchino Visconti. It's fun to see French people talking about their past and how it affected their present and their hopes for the future. These interviews are mostly conducted with people who were born in France and lived through its high point, the second world war. They're mostly fascinating. It's also fun to see how French people talked about themselves and their country before and during the war. It's also a welcome break from the usual just-show and tell documentary style of the world's leaders and military figures. It's worth watching.

Vague, vague, vague - what else could you say to do with this film. It's hard to know what to think of it. This movie was clearly not made to be taken seriously, and while it doesn't comment on itself, it is definitely not for everyone. However, what this movie does very well is to show what life is like on a scale of one to ten. It was long, but the acting was very solid, and the movie actually had a few moments that did have me smiling. One of the best parts was the short section between scenes where the actors talked about their respective characters. The performances were all very good, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a movie that will have you thinking for a while after the credits roll. I would recommend this movie to people who like a good story, but do not necessarily want a film to be more than what it is.

It's a shame how these sensationalist shows such as Big Brother are so often targeted for criticism. While the ratings system may seem to have gotten in the way of some of the more extreme programs, Big Brother, and many other shows that are not in the public eye, seem to do so on purpose to discredit the programs' substance. The Big Brother series is certainly a sensationalized show, and the use of cutting and editing techniques in order to garner ratings may be justified on some of the bigger shows, but it's just plain stupid to bash a program that has helped so many children get over the idea of staying at home and neglecting their careers. Big Brother has helped millions of children to have the motivation to get involved in school, and helps parents to be more involved in their children's lives, and on some of the more extreme programs that have dominated the ratings, Big Brother actually helps the program's show to have ratings, while at the same time it actually gets the ratings. But that's just me. My conclusion, Big Brother does have its positive and negative sides to it. But while it does have its negative sides, it's one of the most acclaimed programs in the world and we need to remember that. I also know that many people have not had a chance to watch the show, and may come away with different opinions, but if you've not yet had a chance to watch it, you're missing out.

This film is the work of photographer/editor Richard Rohrwacher. The film's medium is photography, and it is as though Rohrwacher was using an old-fashioned camera and with a very old-fashioned style of shooting. There is much repetition of shots in this film, and if you've seen "The Castle" you'll know what I mean. While the documentary is nicely made, it's difficult to really get into the detail of the subjects because of the brevity of the film. Rohrwacher is an amazing and fascinating photographer, and although the film is about photography, it is more a discussion of his work than of photography. Rohrwacher comes across as someone who is dedicated to capturing the most interesting things in any given scene, and the film has some good moments, but generally there's not much here. The music is also very subdued, although it does seem like a real time capsule of the early 1960's.

French actor Vincent Cassel talks about his whole life. (mostly his recent life) and his experiences, especially his childhood, through his marriage and first encounters with women. He tries to cover the story of his life, and we are not sure about any of his personal encounters. The camera does not show the interior of the house, but the kitchen and living room, and the conversation of the man and his wife. But the same is not true of the photographer. Everything is presented as part of the story. The way he treats and gets into the intimate position of Vincent is a story, not a documentary. Sometimes, the silence, the dejected, the cold, are shown in a more intimate fashion. The transition from childhood to adult life is part of the story, too. Mostly it's about his marriage and his first sexual encounters. He tries to imagine what it must have been like, what happened to him and what he wanted, to express and communicate his feelings. We are not sure about his past. We cannot really identify with him, and we are not sure if he was an ideal, or a real person, or what has been his life. This is a beautiful documentary. In the end, the master of the cinematography, Maitre Dany Castel, asks the question, "was he right?". I don't know if it was correct, but maybe it was "tokens" of the life. He showed his image of the artist, the figure, the personality. To have an ideal, he had to have his life, to have himself, to be himself. So much of his life is filmed and described, but the greatest thing, his art is not really portrayed. It's his voice, and the way he chooses to speak and talk about it. A personal portrait of a great artist, and the little man behind the work.
