An incredible, clandestinely shot portrait of underclass life and love [that] also illustrates the gap between populace and regime, which is a dignified goal and achievement.

Above its other admirable attributes, this unique documentary presents a wide scope of the culture and very human side of the unknown land 'quite unlike any you will ever know.'

While "They Call It Myanmar" is certainly more encouraging than previous films on this long-repressed country, fears of persecution continue to loom large.
