An extremely interesting way to document politics/democracy. Bringing what is an adult matter to children’s point of view- which ironically seems similar to the adult world. The documentary shows the ugly side of politics- with backstabbing, gossiping and (bullying?) all watered down in the eyes of children. Please Vote For Me is an entertaining and educational documentary that everyone should watch.
What happens when you introduce democracy to a class of third graders in communist China? You see the same tactics used by adults in the politics of the US. Very entertaining and thought-provocative, as well as an interesting glance into a Chinese classroom. Some of those kids are pretty quick-witted as well.
This documentary uses a light tone to deliver what I guess could be a pretty bleak message, depending on who you are. The rich do get richer, even under Communism, even when all babbies are created equally cute. At 58 minutes, the film doesn't stick around long enough to show the poor getting poorer, but there's enough doubt to justify an "Up Series"-style sequel.
