力強い映画です。 メッセージ性、カット、どれも面白く良かったのですが、 この評価は私の好みってのもあるのでしょうね。 しかし、一度は皆様にも見るのをお勧めするムービーです。

現代社会にメスをいれ・・・ って、そんな感覚を削ぐ勢いの映像。 他人にはオススメできない作品に仕上がってます。 日本じゃあまりこういう強烈で直接的な表現はみないですね。 アメリカだったら怒られるんじゃないんすかって。 気持ち悪くなって、途中で観るのを止めようかともおもったけど 目をそむけてはいけないと感じさせるメッセージ性の強い映画でした。 豚に主観をもってくるってのがナイスアイデアです。 ただ最後の曲がさわやかでアンマッチだと感じたのは私だけでしょうか。

I didn't know so much about Haiti. But now, I could know something.

Saw this film in Cannes in 2004: a truly fantastic piece of work. Artful, poetic, beautiful and at times very challenging. I look forward to great things from this extremely gifted filmmaker.

I foud this film very artistic, like a poem of image. Fistrly this movie looks having a strong political message, but the more I watch this, more I felt the political favor is fading. I don't know how other viewers feel...
