TV documentaries are often no more than magazine articles dressed up with pictures. or they fall into the cult personality journalism trap - Nic Broomfield. Michael Moore for example. Sometimes they are SO much better. this film, directed by Don Boyd and produced by Charles Sturridge and Nick Fraser, is an example of documentary at its very best. a combination of innovative smooth film-making (albeit impressionistic at times) and very sensitive, probing storytelling.
