Uncomfortably close to exploitative, there's a whiff of reality TV about this odd - and strangely executed - concept.

Documentary segues into drama, and the film is a lucid précis of a project of great emotional intensity.

September 5, 2011
This is a glib, exploitative project that toys with vulnerable people. It is perhaps of limited interest to popular audiences, but of value to film and drama students.

September 2, 2011
Has moments when only a curmudgeon would fail to be moved or doubt the sincerity of the film-makers.
| Original Score: 3/5
