  1. Sheldon's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Life In A Day is a healthy reminder of just how many ways there are for people in to exist in the world and for that reason I consider it to be a masterpiece.

  2. Quincy Houdayer's rating of the film Life in a Day

    This movie is exactly as the title says. Life in a day. An all encompassing journey through a handful of lives around the world. It shows us the human experience, in all of it's infinite intricacies. Watch this movie, and remember that it's not "just a string of Youtube clips" as some people say, but a glimpse at a human history, for a single day.

  3. Robert Peters-Gehrke's rating of the film Life in a Day

    This is nothing short of a masterpiece, a film made out of fragments of life which all sum up in a palpable avatar of life itself. This film makes you cry and laugh and cry again and connects the viewer, the single human soul, with all of mankind. We're in this together. That's the simple but profound message delivered by this most humane film. Don't miss it, I beg you.

  5. Oliver Müller's rating of the film Life in a Day

  6. kopfkompass's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Pretty random. (SPOILER!) The scene in which the cow was slaughtered haunted me for days.

  7. Hans Rudolf's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Faszinierendes Kaleidoskop von bewegenden, amüsanten und traurigen Alltagsszenen, die jedoch nicht hinterfragt werden. Die mitreissende Authentizität vieler Protagonisten bildet das Herzstück des Films. Leider ist der Soundtrack an vielen Stellen zu aufdringlich und pathetisch. Insgesamt jedoch einfach so zum Schauen sehr gut gelungen und bis zur letzten Sekunde inspirierend.

  8. Oliver Schafeld's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Saw this one on Youtube already. Uplifting, touching, very charming idea to let 'everybody' tell the story of 'everyday'.

  9. Aaron Dillenbeck's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Emotionally moving and ultra humanistic. Its a glimpse in the lives of people from every spectrum of mankind and an invitation to join them for moments at a time. The editing was spectacular and the soundtrack was the glue holding the pieces together. Unique and refreshing concept executed with care and knowledge of our species. Highly recommended.

  10. nikolasminas's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Interesting idea but the movie is a bit superficial

  11. Martin's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Témoignage terrestre du 24_07_2010.

  12. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film Life in a Day

    A nice docu but nothing more. It was somewhat interesting to a certain point but overall too slight to have any real impact. I just wish they'd made the whole movie about the korean guy who bikes around the world instead.

  13. Inez Cmyk's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Too ephemeral to have impact. Nonetheless a nice watch if you are tired, had a bad day or are hungover and in need of something to wash over you passively. Works splendidly for this purpose.

  14. Hayat's rating of the film Life in a Day

  15. Koyo's rating of the film Life in a Day

    great film! sometimes the music is questionable well edited - recommendable

  16. Achim Grün's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Not sure what this movie wants to be. A representational view of the people on our planet? Then it is overambitious and clearly fails. The clips are missing coherence. A good director could have made something out of it but in this case all that remains is the dull insight that 'life is beautiful'. My advice is to browse YouTube yourself. You will find better material and can act as a better director in the process.

  17. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Watched and evaluated by a scientist in the year 2510: "Oh look, in 2010 there has been a clear distinction: People in so-called underdeveloped countries were working so hard (and - like these African women - singing so nicely or - like the little shoeshine boy - had such a beautiful smile on their faces) while the rest of the world, especially people of the Western culture, had a lot of fun during their days."

  18. anarresti's rating of the film Life in a Day

    It's worth for the concept and the execution. It was the first project of this magnitude. Not sure there will be another. Things, in three years, already changed quickly. Everyone is used to having (like with Facebook) their media being owned by the service they use online. The need to ask users to donate media is probably outdated. Will opensource have something to say about this? Are pre-teens already different?

  19. Mayara Bastos's rating of the film Life in a Day

    Uma ousada ideia, em mostrar através de um simples dia, em vários lugares do globo, com a intenção de introduzir o espectador a culturas variadas. Um filme sobre pessoas, sentimentos e comportamentos. Belo retrato dos seres humanos.

  20. Lorena Brandão's rating of the film Life in a Day

  21. VotreX's rating of the film Life in a Day

    21st century time capsule, or surveillance footage for aliens.

  22. Tom Noblett's rating of the film Life in a Day
