“Anything but simple, manages to surprise and stun … Filmed with ambitious scope and devastating intimacy.”
—New York Times Critic’s Pick
“Superb… a level of deep, intimate access and rapport that few filmmakers can hope to achieve… Unfolds more like a riveting neorealist drama.”
“If you ever wanted to know what being human is, this film, from its first sequence on, grasps you in the womb, deep in your most profound being, in what defines us all as the human family. A film unlike anything you have ever seen before. Pure, Limpid, it will shatter your vision of life. Your own, in particular.”
—Raoul Peck, filmmaker
