According to one viewer, "Guillame", known for his progressive political and social views, lives in a 12 x 12 room, and is a follower of "LeFevre" (Albert Camus) in his art. Guillame's father is a business man. His mother is an activist. His grandfather, a psychologist, "likes black people, too". This is only one among many. What Guillame wants to tell us is the way that the different faiths view their brothers. From the "Quadrioceles" (no, not the other quadriolar system): Atheists, agnostics and Christians, or the Christian-buddhist divide. We start with the stories of the Quakers and to the far-right-wing Prudence-Leconte. For a documentary-style film, it is exceptional to be able to tell the whole story from the perspective of people who actually lived their lives. This is the only documentary film that I can remember, where I didn't just hear the voices of these "intellectuals", but actually got a feel for the way their minds work. There are lots of "spoils" of making a documentary about Quakers, and of being able to create such a non-biased picture. The biggest reward comes from having a very clear and coherent picture of who these people are. This film has an "educational" value, if you want to go for that: "The Virgin of Guillamene", "The World of Guillame" and "Christianity Without Borders" are the ones I can recall. However, one really big surprise came from this documentary. It is not the images, the words or the interviews. It is the manner in which they are told. These are not theatrical pieces, but real-life stories of Quaker brothers. The different moods in this documentary are different in each brother. For example, when Guillame narrates a story of his own childhood, his voice is sometimes soft and quiet, sometimes loud and enthusiastic, sometimes laid back and quiet. When he narrates the story of his father, the expression of the story is always emotional, and sometimes instead of being sad, he is overwhelmed with sadness. This tells us a lot. We don't know which kind of the brothers are who they are. As an example, the one who tells the story of his mother is very lucid and friendly, while the one who tells about his grandmother is very simple and controlled. The same can be said about the brothers who narrate about Quaker history, such as Humble Pie, with his short and quick remarks. In conclusion, this is a very personal documentary that is different in each of the brothers' stories, but it also has an education value. It is certainly not the most important documentary, but it is the most "important" documentary of all time. It shows us that there is much more to life than reading about it on Wikipedia, and it is well worth watching.

The White Helmets of the White Helmets of the White Helmets is a top 10 action film to watch. This documentary is packed with interviews with the main characters and what they have to go through. Many have their own stories of those on the front lines and those on the front lines having to see their friends or family being killed in front of them. The White Helmets do what they are required to do to save civilians from the bombings, killings and even systematic torture of civilians as they flee their homes. The White Helmets are made up of volunteers all around the world but even so, you have the impression that some are going to be in it just for the money, while others know that it is their duty and that they have to do it to protect civilians from the killing, torture, or genocide that is taking place around them in the Middle East. To my opinion, this documentary is very interesting, but you should probably read some of the other reviews before you watch it. You will probably learn some of the truth about what they have to go through and also learn how that relates to other organizations and governments that are perpetrating these atrocities.

With a few scenes, Bergman tries to explain to us how he did his films. This is an accessible, interesting and very much interesting film, but not really for those who have no interest in culture and arts, but for those who like the idea of seeing and thinking about the meaning of the film, and Bergman in particular, to learn about his films. Bergman tries to explain why he likes his movies, that can easily be understood by almost anyone, and it's not a hard lesson to learn. Although it's hard to get a full grasp of the whole idea of Bergman's films, watching this film will definitely put you in the right frame of mind for that. It's hard to explain Bergman's films, that are very complex and full of meaning, because his films are certainly more art than anything else. But this film gives us the view, and we can learn that it's a beautiful, beautiful movie.

As one of the hundreds of German words on Wikipedia, I'd heard of the film before. On one hand, you could probably add it to the list of the top 100 words on Wikipedia. On the other hand, if you wanted to see it in a cinema, where they would probably not have a second language (Spanish), you'd be wasting your money. I did see the film in a cinema, but only just because it was advertised as a "deluxe" film (a film that looks a lot more expensive than it is). And it turned out to be a lot more expensive than I thought it would be, even if I was looking forward to a better picture. It's a small film with very few things to say. It's simply a story of two people who had to kill the entire family of one man (Dorff), and then they had to deal with a tragedy of their own. None of the footage is more than 3 seconds long. The picture looks great, the camera work is fine and solid, but the characters are limited. They all have their weaknesses and are absolutely flat. The people seem to be playing these characters for laughs. They all seem to be doing it in a very self-absorbed way. A woman starts saying, "I have one question." She says it a thousand times. This doesn't work. You want to know what that question is. It is never addressed. I'm not saying it is a bad film. The people do an excellent job. They look bored, bored, bored. It does remind me of the end of "The Godfather". Except that, the violence in "The Godfather" isn't just murder, it is what they have to do to survive. In "The Godfather" we see the cost of a war on people. We see the change in their life after. The story of "The Godfather" is the exact opposite, it is the change in the life of people after that war. In "The Godfather", the money and the power of the people is what holds the whole thing together. In "The Godfather", we see only what was going on inside the men's lives. We don't see what happened outside of them, because we don't know any better. In "The Godfather", violence was made up by the men, or carried out by the women. In "The Godfather", it is not possible to have two police officers killing the same man at the same time. In "The Godfather", one man couldn't be there for everything, and so it is the whole world. In "The Godfather", there are so many police officers that they can arrest the entire world. In "The Godfather", there are so many times when the men are killed that they are driven insane by the murders, and so they kill even more. The people in "The Godfather" become so stupid that they forget to ask one another what was going on, but the film depicts that they talk about it constantly, because they are so caught up in their own stupidity. In "The Godfather", you knew that something was happening, and you didn't know how. In "The Godfather", you know what is going to happen, and you don't know how, but you still go ahead with what you have to do. This is the way I think about a movie, it's the same way that I think about my life. I'm still not sure what to do, and I'm only able to follow the bad things with a piece of paper, and sometimes the pieces of paper slip and fall and I have to jump to catch them. And as the day gets longer and longer, I have to think, what if I jump to catch this piece of paper? I could have never watched this film, and I still don't know what to do with it. I'm not sure if it's better than a book or a film, but I like it a lot. It isn't a very good film, but it is a very good film, and it's worth seeing. This is how I feel about a film, nothing special, nothing extraordinary, and I'm glad I saw it. I think you can get a lot more from a film if you know what you're getting. And that's what I think about movies, and it's the same thing I think about other things in my life. I just can't get caught up in what I am doing, or what I'm thinking about. I try to find something interesting to do with my time, and I just don't get bored of the same old things. I watch movies to help me find a new thing to do. I do get bored of these things and I have to think what I should do to avoid that boredom. That's how I like movies. I like movies because it gives me something

Criminally underrated! I'm surprised that some of the negative reviews are by people who would never pay to see this documentary. This is not a documentary about World War 2. It's about the heroism of the Spanish Civil War and how the war and the war dead affected both sides. I'm not going to ruin the film for you but I would like to say that it doesn't shine a light on the Japanese side but what the Spanish did to the Japanese and vice-versa. While I don't agree with the bias of the reviewers (just my own opinion) I did enjoy the film. The amount of footage and details is great and the film flows well. The Spanish Civil War is one of the defining events in history and the film documents it beautifully. It's not a documentary and it's not a history lesson but it does serve a purpose. I give this film an 8.
