    Life is cruel, so it goes, so it goes...

  2. Patric Schatzmann's rating of the film The Shelter

    Fernand Melgar helps us see the life of people without shelter in Switzerland. This Film, being the 3rd one in a beautiful trilogy.

  3. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film The Shelter

  4. Nilbaran's rating of the film The Shelter

    a real, great documentation about inhuman conditions of the EU and European politics...

  5. Quoíx's rating of the film The Shelter

    There were so many instances where the situation escalated ever so slightly and it either bordered or passed the fuzzy line between inhumane and humane treatment.

  6. Alister Burton's rating of the film The Shelter

    A bleak look at life below the poverty line. Somewhat staged, sure, but that doesn't diminish the reality.

  7. Al Burton's rating of the film The Shelter

    A bleak look at life below the poverty line. Somewhat staged, sure, but that doesn't diminish the reality of the situation.

  8. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Shelter

    How sad and frequent these days...

  9. Santiago Baquero's rating of the film The Shelter

    Muy buena , una piña al rostro de cualquier persona que la mire. Excelente como el director muestra la situación de los inmigrantes y de los sin techos, problema que se da en cualquier parte del mundo.

  10. Luca's rating of the film The Shelter

    Documento interessante, ma un po' troppo ripetitivo.

  11. msmichel's rating of the film The Shelter

    Well made but very staged documentary from Fernand Melgar looking at the migrant experience by concentrating on a Swiss shelter over a winter season. Wiseman this certainly isn't. The futility of the operation and the often hopeless situation of the migrant is well felt but the dialogue captured often seems scripted.

  12. chechino's rating of the film The Shelter

    Desolador vivir sin un techo, sin un hogar y es la realidad de millones de personas en el mundo, que buscan un lugar en el mundo para desatollarse y encontrar oportunidades de trabaj

  13. rociof's rating of the film The Shelter

    Documenta las atrocidades de una sociedad que se lamenta. Un retrato realizado con la destreza de los confinados, los don-nadie. Recomendable.

  14. El Mau's rating of the film The Shelter

    Que duro, tanto para los que trabajan ahí, pero más, para los inmigrantes... buen documental

  15. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Shelter

    Verite’s not my favourite, and Melgar, despite attempts, doesn't manage to avoid its problems. But even a contrived impartiality affords the characters a shred of the dignity lost to the brutalizing system they're subject to. And silenced by. Debates about technique seem pedantic. A humane, compelling argument against the so-called logic of austerity & the exploitative neocolonial ideology of immigration control. 3.5

  16. Zepo's rating of the film The Shelter

    Una mirada al gran problema del futuro: la migración. Los países ricos se convierten históricamente en el pesebre de los rincones del mundo más pobres. El hambre, el frío, la desesperanza transgreden en esta película la pantalla para sentirlo en carne propia, y los problemas personales, desaparecen. Me parece que el director cumple con su objetivo y descobija esa miseria que nadie quiere ver.

  17. Huw Morgan's rating of the film The Shelter

  18. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Shelter

    The tough end of the debate about immigration. No easy answers here, just the truth.

  19. paul oram's rating of the film The Shelter

    This Documentary provides no answers, but gives voice to a mixed bag of economic migrants finding themselves in Lausanne. Its ridiculous that such a rich city can't provide more help. That smart African guy deserved a chance. These people are only trying to better themselves. Makes me angry.

  20. tomfdzv@gmail.com's rating of the film The Shelter

    Amazing documentary, it's a fucked up world

  21. SiIencio's rating of the film The Shelter

    Honest documentary about one of the many evils that impacts the lives of the marginalised and underprivileged. The inequalities of this opulent world force many of our brothers and sisters to search for a better future in foreign lands only to find how these deny them of their basic needs, like a basic shelter. Immigration is a global multifaceted phenomenon and this film helps to keep awareness alive.

  22. Jeremy Whipp's rating of the film The Shelter

    Touching stories of the different people struggling to make it through the cold Lausanne winter. Poignant, beautifully shot and funny. Bravo !!

  23. Jose Manuel Lopez Covarrubias's rating of the film The Shelter

    Documental que ilustra la vida de los inmigrantes con aspiraciones a estar en Suiza, un asomo intimista a la problemática que viven los sin hogar en esos lares.

  24. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Shelter

    Heartbreaking viewing - a shelter that is stretched to the limit by a flawed system that dehumanises the homeless and leaves many without support, including those that operate the shelter. This is why there needs to be more compassionate political constructs in this world - there is no such thing as the undeserving poor - no one deserves poverty, neither the best nor the worst of us, nor anyone else in between.
