A beautiful range of emotions

How this short mockumentary doesn't have higher reviews is entirely beyond me.

The filmmaker has managed to capture, in just 15 minutes, a huge range of emotions. You begin by feeling sorry for Marius, almost laughing at him. confined to his failed life. Then you feel pity in that his choice to look after his sick father rather than following his dream was a choice few people today would make. His philosophy "No Bad Days" was a turning point where you begin to realise that despite his circumstances his awkward, sad, optimism in fact quite beautiful.

Beautifully filmed, beautifully edited, an amazing soundtrack you can understand how it's managed to win so many awards and that, at the time of writing this, that the film only has a review of 4.9 is a pretty sad reflection on what IMDb users today have become.
