A heart-render and a hankie-drencher, it's a film of quiet, almost incalculable power.

I'm recommending the movie because it must be regarded as an extraordinary expression of will, endurance and fortitude.

Even after four hours, we're left wanting to know a lot more--and with the sense that this desire may itself be one of those human strategies to cope with the overwhelming power of a most enigmatic and undiscriminating villain.

An astonishing four-hour documentary that takes on a very difficult subject -- children with cancer -- and renders it with unflinching intimacy, uncommon compassion and, above all, a profound respect for the eternal enigma that is the human body.
