Weeks of photos from the death camps are shown in this documentary, in which they talk about the horrible conditions in which the Jewish people were housed, how it was an extermination camp, and the hardships of living there. We also hear from a lot of survivors of the camps, describing the hell that they had to go through. Some of the stories are hilarious, such as the one of a little boy named Yogev (Benny Kutner), who was waiting in line for a new bus, when he saw a boy named Yosef (Marc Stern), who he named "Yogev". This has to be the funniest scene in the entire movie. I've seen this documentary more than once, and it still manages to make me laugh and feel sad at the same time. Watch it, if you haven't seen it yet.

I always love the movies that have been made by the Holy Ghost that I watched on the good old TV. One of those movies that I love is 8 Men and a Woman by Marcel Carneel. It's a movie about faith and faith in God. It is very well made and it's a documentary about this faith and faith in God. I have seen this movie on TV many times. I think that this movie is a must-see. There are lots of quotes from the movie, like the one I wrote above. I think that the Holy Ghost is a great example of that faith in God that has been proved in this movie. I give this movie a 9/10. I would also like to know what you think about this movie.

This documentary, made in English, takes the viewer through the life of the legendary German actor and filmmaker Michael Lirda. We see how Lirda was a good friend to the people of Austria, and the people of his native Germany, and how he was able to get the role of the villain in the Nazi film "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." to become one of the most successful directors in the history of German cinema. This film is a very personal one. It shows us how Lirda was able to achieve success in Germany and abroad, and how he was able to make friends with some of the most famous actors of the time. It also shows us how he became the director of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." and the great success that he had with it. In the end, we see that Lirda is a very close friend to the people of Austria and Germany, and that he has been able to make friends with many of the famous actors of the time. I personally believe that this is a very good documentary, but one that is not to be taken too seriously.

This film brings home the concept of colonialism with a very simple, yet interesting look at the island nation of Kiribati in the Pacific, one of the last strongholds of the colonial era. The two main characters are both outsiders, and the film is informative in both cultural and historical terms, but I also found the characters to be very authentic in their acting abilities. The film has a very strong message of love and peace. For a film made in 2010, the main message is also very clear - the way the people live is the best for their health. Even the use of all natural resources is very much present in this film, especially the people themselves. The film also demonstrates the clear connection between colonial rule and colonial racism, the ways in which colonialism has changed and how the connection between one another has been broken down.

I've seen a lot of documentaries about LGBT and this is certainly the best one I've ever seen. This movie includes a lot of great material. The hardest parts of this movie are the ones that involve the gay community. The gay people in the movie are all very convincing and their stories are very well told. I also enjoyed how this movie was made. It's not just about the LGBT people, but about all of the people who live in that community. It's very clear from the beginning that this is a documentary about a group of people. I was very impressed that this movie was made in Denmark. The camera work was very good and the people in the film all looked like they were very comfortable being interviewed. The performances were also very good, especially by the gay people in the movie. The hardest part of the movie for me was how difficult it was for them to talk about their life. It's very difficult for all of them to talk about their experiences. The most important thing for me was that the movie ended on a positive note. It wasn't depressing at all and it was very positive. I'm really glad that this movie got made and that it will be distributed to many people around the world. It was definitely a documentary that I would recommend to my friends.

The power of a song is on the screen, whether it is "Power of Love" or "To Serve Man." It is the power of music that the producers of this documentary would like you to believe it has. In reality, it is a film about the negative and little known consequences of our obsession with the material things in life. The story that this film is told, and the information that it gives about the dangers of technology and the resulting accidents that result from them, are not full of sound. The very real problem of human sacrifice, drug addiction, and poverty is presented in an emotionally engaging manner, but not in a way that will lead you to quit smoking or drink, or take up soccer, or work out. The story itself is a good one, but it is told in an unemotional and uninspiring way. The information about the human tragedy that results from technology is not well-sourced, and it is presented as if it is a novel or a documentary. The film is not very well produced, and it leaves a lot of the more interesting and important parts of the story out. The film is not about a single individual, or a single technological problem. It is about a kind of death that many of us do not think about, or even understand.

An old German-English couple narrate the stories of several couples living in an old, poor apartment building. On the surface, the stories were interesting enough to keep me awake, and I think the director did a good job with the subject material. However, there are several sequences in the movie that seem to take place over a long period of time, and I found them to be extremely uncomfortable, especially during the scenes where the couple can't speak and where the woman's speech is slurred by a sleep disorder. The characters had little depth, and I think this was a shame, as I thought that they would be more real, given the amount of time that had gone into the couple's personal stories. I think the writer and director should have gotten better at their craft, and that the subjects of these stories could have been more prominent. Overall, I thought this film was very good, but the film's lack of depth in the characters and lack of connection with the subject material made the film difficult to stay awake to. I think that if the director had spent a little more time on the subject material, he could have brought the audience into the story. I think that this was a great subject for a documentary, but maybe the filmmakers could have spent a little more time on the characters.

This is the movie i've been waiting for since i first saw the documentary film about Evel Knievel.I'm not much of a Knievel fan,but having seen this film,my opinion of Evel seems to have changed a little bit.I think that his love for his girlfriend changed him a little bit,which led to him doing the stunt jumping stunts that he did that later became known to everyone.I think that this is the movie that best explains how Evel became a famous figure.The director does a good job making Evel more a human being than a superhuman.I think this is the movie that we should see more of.Not only do the movie actors like Kyle MacLachlan and Steven Seagal,but also the director himself,who is a very special person.The movie does an excellent job showing how Evel started out as a very private person.The director uses all of the things that were important to him,including his personal life to make his film.Overall,I give this movie a 9 out of 10.

When a state-supported refugee camp in Liberia was devastated by a deadly disease outbreak in the 1980s, US aid workers (primarily a couple of US State Department staffers) flew in several dozen tons of rice to help the survivors. The film highlights the US involvement in the aid effort, but also shows the political ramifications of the outbreak in Liberia and its fallout. The movie's non-fiction style and its ability to show US aid workers and the political ramifications is excellent. This documentary is not entirely an overview of the aid effort, but shows some of the most notable issues and controversies. It includes some interviews with current US officials, but is mostly more a profile of the people involved. Many US officials have since died of the disease, while several of their family members continue to live in the camps. The movie has strong, but nuanced, opinions about some of the larger issues that led to the aid effort. One of the movie's strongest points is that its staff is passionate about their cause. They show a deep and thorough knowledge of the aid effort, and are able to give unbiased, unemotional accounts of their personal experiences and the people who they helped. They emphasize that the US government, the aid agencies, the aid workers, and their families are just one facet of the humanitarian crisis in West Africa, and that the US government is primarily responsible for what was actually done by the other parties. The movie does not have a single "gotcha" moment, and the viewer is able to appreciate the passion of the people who were part of this great effort.

This documentary is about the very sad events of the last few years in Hamburg. The documentary starts with a German reporter from a German TV channel, showing us the problems and the fact that the German media is completely underfunded and has no coverage of the whole refugee crisis. The journalist is quite honest and very open about his view of the current situation. I have to say that the German media is quite honest in general, but it seems that it is not the case with the Hamburg media. It is almost as if they are trying to avoid the media of their own country. This is not the case. The Hamburg media are all too honest and do their best to tell the truth. The documentary also talks about the people that have been affected by the crisis, but it is mostly from the refugees themselves. The people are shown in a very good way, and the documentary makes you feel that they are a very important part of the population. I think that this documentary is very important, and it is a very interesting one. I would recommend this documentary to anyone, because it is very interesting. I give it 7/10.

I wanted to see this film because of the massive amount of press attention and the general interest in conservation. This film was well worth the wait. It's worth watching several times to catch the nuances. The viewer needs to see this movie several times before he or she will know what this is all about. It's an amazingly well made film that will change the way you look at the environment. You will be amazed at the way the screen writer and director have put together this piece of art. There is a certain level of respect that must be shown to this film. I applaud the film's courage and respect for nature. And yet, the film is very well acted. The acting is superb, and I can see how the actors could be embarrassed in front of the camera and many in front of the audience. Most of the actors are unknowns, and I was reminded of the film "The Long Good Friday" (an amazing and underrated film) when I learned of the ensemble cast. I felt the presence of many unknown actors, including Daniel Craig, Jonny Lee Miller, Rufus Sewell, and even the narrator, which is the voice of Don Adams. This film does not want to make a political statement. The point is to tell a beautiful story of a group of individuals making a huge contribution to the great conservation efforts of the world. I would recommend this film to everyone. Not everyone is going to like it, but this film is worth watching.

I believe many people will be taken by the fact that this documentary focuses more on the modern world than that of the 60s. It's not about the days of the 60s, it's about today, today, and today, and how we're dealing with today. It's not about the actual music of the 60s, it's about the music that the 60s were. I am sorry I don't have a lot of time to write any more, but this documentary will be hard to ignore. A brilliant documentary. Keep an eye out for many performances by present day artists.

I just saw this documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival, and it was a fascinating and refreshing look into the life of the great and increasingly legendary Austrian painter Leni Riefenstahl. In addition to showing the many positive aspects of her career, it also showed her most revealing and disturbing side: how her love for Hitler made her perfect for Nazi propaganda. Riefenstahl is best known for her role as the co-founder of the Nazi party and, soon after, the first woman to be given full control of Germany's TV network (at the age of 17). For this reason, I had been very aware of her powerful influence on German history. However, Riefenstahl's sex life is also revealed, in the film and in a series of interviews with Riefenstahl herself. In this way, the movie allows us to see a side of her we rarely see, and it is a truly fascinating insight into the man. Riefenstahl loved Hitler and wanted to be a war hero. However, she also loved the Gestapo, who were very violent and brutal towards political opponents. This was the power of Riefenstahl to lead the Nazis, and she certainly was charismatic. Riefenstahl's life was a cruel, sad, and often violent one. Her entire family was murdered by the Nazis, her own son was arrested, tortured, and murdered, and her daughter, Bertha, was sent to a concentration camp. In the documentary, Riefenstahl even says she hated the Germans, and it is clear that she did not love them, but rather despised them. Riefenstahl loved Hitler, and if you listen to the interviews, she also claimed that the war was the right thing to do, and that the only way to save Germany was to destroy the Germans. However, as Riefenstahl also states, the Nazis wanted to live in a society where men and women worked together, and where all groups of people lived together, no matter who they were. She also hated the Nazis, and claimed that they were not only monsters, but also evil. Riefenstahl's art is her life. Her films were the means by which she made this statement. She was incredibly charismatic, and her most important documentary, Triumph of the Will, was simply the film version of what she felt. She loved her art, and she loved the way she gave people something to look at and not just look at. This film is, in my opinion, a masterpiece. It shows Riefenstahl's love for the Nazis, and their powerful propaganda. However, it also shows her hatred for the Jews, and her complete disregard for their humanity. She was a war hero, and the war was the best thing to happen to her. Her actions were not based on logic, but rather on her lust for power, and she simply did not care about the lives of others, and she cared more about her art. Riefenstahl was a ruthless and unhinged woman, but this film shows the way she truly loved her art.

I am not a big fan of this kind of documentaries. They usually have a lot of stuff that makes no sense and there is a lot of talk that makes no sense. In this documentary the viewer will get a very clear picture of what goes on behind the scenes in the film industry. This is the first documentary I have seen where the director had to sit for a while and explain everything to the audience. That was a very good thing because I do not understand what all the talk is about. I have seen a lot of documentaries and this is the first one that I had to sit for. It is a good documentary and it is worth seeing. I would recommend this documentary to all the viewers.

A bit more than I expected, but this film is worth seeing. I didn't know that the German government had built a number of isolated "nest houses" on the island, but I had heard that they were used by the Nazis. So I was looking forward to seeing this. I had read that the director and producer had traveled to the island in the 1970s and had a chance to visit the places that were there. And that they had been surprised by the beauty and the serenity. I was also looking forward to hearing more about the Holocaust, and about the people who were killed there. What I found was more of a documentary than a film. The director talks to the people who were there and gives them the story of what happened there, but also goes on to talk about the women who were the victims of the Nazis. I think that this would have been a better film if it had been a bit more about the women. The director doesn't talk much about the Holocaust, but he does talk about the island. And he talks about the people who lived there. I think that if the film had been a bit more about the island, it would have been more effective. But it was still a good documentary.
