[No country for soft hearts.] Aquaparque. Casa Pia. Joaninha. This. My country is oh so ugly. I can't deal with bad things done to kids. Yet them bad guys are never caught, now are they? And we cannot change human men, so we can only weep and teach kids from the earliest ages to be GOOD men! Take noes and silence(s) as valid answers. Still hoping she is alive. If she ain't, her daily life is a monday at Fritzl's. </3
Too long. The efforts of trying to show both sides as equal don't show: a very partial documentary that is quite frustrating to watch for those who grew up with the crime in their own territory, It has some nice information and a couple of interesting interventions, but for a foreign viewer, is too biased, and for a Portuguese, is not enough.
Competently informative although shockingly biased and full of post-colonial prejudices. After the 4th episode, it feels surreally like a hypnotic mantra of repetition that does not add anything. At first, I thought it had to be some sort of visionary concept but the lack of payoff proved it wrong.
Great in terms of putting together all the information in one place. But gets too repetitive and boring. 8 episodes were super unnecessary, 3 or 4 episodes would be enough, instead of replacing the main subject by other kids' disappearance.
