Because directors Emma Davie (Platt's widow) and Morag McKinnon spend little time explaining his medical condition, the video doesn't function as a case study.
Emma Davie and Morag McKinnon deliver an achingly reflective look at the life of a man struggling with ALS.
Part impressionistic abstract of his day-to-day experience merging with idyllic memories, part letter to his toddler son Oscar, "Breathing" takes its humorous, contemplative tonal cues from Neil himself ...
"I Am Breathing" is an earnest and important film. It deserves to be seen by anyone who is interested in documentaries and anyone who is interested in the simple human stories movies too often overlook.
Platt and his story are inherently moving, and co-directors Emma Davie and Morag McKinnon wisely employ a light, unobtrusive touch as their camera captures the erosion of Platt's health.
A film that, amid cinema's hit parade of violent but curiously instantaneous deaths, reminds us what it means to bear witness to the very end.
[An] unforgettably moving documentary.
Heartbreaking and profound. You'll be balling your eyes out, unless you're made of stone.
...I Am Breathing is not a documentary intended to induce sobbing. It is, instead, a film about dying that is stunningly alive, wildly optimistic, and always insightful and entertaining.
A moving portrait of a courageous young man with Lou Gehrig's Disease who seeks to make his death fruitful to others.
Neil's insistence on telling his own story with his own voice, on getting that voice out there for the rest of the world to listen to, is itself a fierce act, evidence of a rare vitality.
A sober, conventionally told doc about a man who is dying of Motor Neurone Disease, known as Lou Gehrig's disease in the U.S.
