    Almost inevitably, a film made from these snippets is less than the sum of its parts.

    This pointillistic view of everyday people never quite gels as a movie, but it has its point-and-click moments.

    What I took away were some individual moments from people whose lives I wish had played out more.

    Give Macdonald and crew credit for picking out good, clear, telling contrasts, and not sweating potential heavy-handedness.

    It's best to simply ignore its corporate branding and accept the spirit of deeper understanding and celebration of the project's intention.

    With director Kevin Macdonald finding a rhythm among the myriad footage submitted, this honest, funny and touching doco is an incredible achievement.

    You walk out with a good feeling, having seen a lot of humanity in the almost raw.

    Sydney Morning Herald

    September 02, 2011

    It's a feel-good movie in that sense, affirmative without being sentimental or exploitative.
