A two hour documentary about a three-part Italian television series that was the most talked about science documentary ever. The show ran from 1992 to 1995. The first episode, titled "Hippocampus", made the news in 1994. The second and final episode, titled "L'amore", won the Science Olympiad in 1995. A number of scientists came forward to speak about their experiences working with the Hippocampus. You can find out more about the series at the Science Channel web site. Thanks to the Science Channel, I can now watch all three episodes of the series. I also found that the first episode, with Bonino and Edouard, is now available on DVD. The second episode, "Das Experiment", which has very little to do with the real story, is also available on DVD.

First of all, a word about the historical accuracy. While the movie does not go into much detail about the actual changes that took place, it does depict the truth. This movie can be seen as a mini documentary on the founding of the U.S. and how much it influenced the world. The movie includes interviews with prominent leaders of the period. The movie also contains news footage from the time and there is footage from the Lincoln assassination in 1865. In addition to the interview footage, the movie also includes news reports from the time. The movie was first produced in 1990 and it has been distributed through film houses and cable television. The movie has received many awards. It has also been nominated for several awards including the Academy Award for Best Picture. The movie was the last of the documentaries to receive an Oscar, the last being Mel Brooks' "Dances with Wolves" (1983). This is an important movie that is well worth seeing. After watching this movie, you will be able to better understand the message of freedom and the importance of education. This is a must see for everyone. You will be so happy you took the time to watch this movie.

If anyone knows how to tell a story it's an excellent and fascinating one. I can't believe people don't like this film. If you're going to see a film you have to let your mind do the thinking. If you didn't let your mind do the thinking and don't let it, you won't like it. I have to admit I had doubts about this film before seeing it. I'd been thinking for a long time that it was going to be a sort of 'documentary' with the story told in a documentary style. However, after watching it I couldn't believe my eyes and ears. I was blown away. The movie is an absolute masterpiece. I won't give away the whole story but if you've got a full stomach you'll probably love it. Everyone has to see this movie. I wouldn't mind the Oscar nomination if I had the chance. I'm sure it would be well deserved.

I can't believe that this movie is only in English. It's amazing. From start to finish I was lost in the world of the film makers. No wonder the filmmaker was so upset after the screening. The film is made for a worldwide audience and I was astounded that people were so excited to see this film and yet they were so well versed in the history of the so called "Vatican Bank". I wonder how much better the film would have been with subtitles? I have never understood the obsession with the so called "Vatican Bank". Maybe it was because I'm not Catholic. Maybe because I live in Italy. Maybe it was because I am a journalist. The film was shot on location in the Vatican. What a fantastic setting for an artistic masterpiece. To see the Vatican built in the stone age was truly amazing. The film makers captured the setting of the Vatican in its original, beautiful, artistic form. To see the "Vatican Bank" in its modern day form is just marvelous. I'm really interested in seeing this film. I'm really excited to see how it will all come together.

This is a very well done documentary about how Italian mafia went under after the creation of the state, and about the rise of drug trafficking. It is really interesting to see how Italian cops, military, and mafia, were created. I loved the way that the story shows the whole birth and growth of the mafia and the relationships of the different mafia families. It is very clear and easy to follow. I also enjoyed the fact that it shows the way how the mafia is supported by all different Italian politicians, and how the mafia has always been tied to the political system. I also liked the fact that it really shows how the mafia has always had to pay back every time they made a mistake, because the people who do not want to pay for their sins will always find a way to pay them back, and the mafia has always had to pay back their debts to every mafia family. I really enjoyed the fact that it shows the rise of the mafia, the death of the mafia, the rise of the politicians and the rise of the mafia itself. The only thing that really bothered me was that it was very easy to understand that the mafia never had to pay their debts to any mafia family, but they were always connected to their families. The best part of the film is the interview with the godfather of the Italian mafia, who is interviewed several times throughout the film. It was interesting to hear the interview, and it is very revealing about the origins of the mafia. He says that "everything that happened in the mafia happened because they were in debt, because they had no other way to pay, because they couldn't even just kill their enemies, because they were not criminals, because they were not even mafia members". I really liked that the godfather says that his father started the mafia, and that his father is the most important person in the mafia, and it is very clear that the mafia is also a part of his family. Overall, I really enjoyed the film, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a fascinating, yet detailed and good documentary about how the mafia was born and grew, and how Italian politicians and mafia families supported it. The film also shows how the mafia in Europe has changed, and how it has changed over time. It is very clear that the mafia is no longer connected with the mafia in Italy, it is now not even a part of the mafia in Italy. I would give this film a 10/10, and I am glad that I watched it, because it is really good!

This film has made me re-examine my relationship to food, and to food culture in general. It is deeply moving, and is a lesson on how a chef's way of living can affect the way you eat. The final words of the film are: "If you make an effort to be appreciative of food, you will be."

The nature of the patient is unique. Whether you are living with cancer or not, living with a disease is far different than not living with it. The story of life and death is told through a collection of footage. Each scene is like an episode of a documentary. When a doctor introduces a patient to the camera, it is like taking a documentary about a doctor in a hospital or a cancer patient. They share experiences, emotions and stories. I think this is the first documentary that can present the true nature of the cancer patient, so that even a cancer patient will recognize the story. It is not a typical documentary where you can just watch people talk about their experiences. It is a narrative that will take you on a journey of life and death. You will learn about the nature of the patient, but you will also learn about your own health and the effects of cancer on your body. It will be a journey of understanding and respect. This documentary will be a much-needed therapy for cancer patients, but it is also a study on the human condition and how we can improve our lives.

Cinema of Promise is a film about the Greek people who are getting hit in the head by a coming economic collapse. They have to leave their land and move in with other countries and become part of the European Union. One of the best parts of the film is about the Turkish in Athens. They are being forced to pay back debts and make deals with the bankers. The Turks are the ones who are making deals with the banks. The Turkish people are being asked to pay back the loans and all they want is money back. The Turks have been taught to believe that they are Greeks and should be treated as such. The Turks are not being told that they have rights in Greece and should be treated like Greeks. They are being asked to sell their land and are being forced to make deals with the bankers. This film is a great document of the situation of Greeks in Greece and also of the Turkish in Greece. The film does not show the hardships of the Turkish people and how they have been treated. Instead it shows how a very small group of people are actually being held accountable. I believe that this film will be a new movie to people who know nothing about the Greek people or Turkish people.

A well-acted, well-filmed documentary about the life of the composer Ramiro Gamberini, who died aged 44 in 2006. It is a truly fascinating, touching, sometimes funny and poignant journey into the life of the man who was the most important figure of the 20th century. If you're a Gamberini fan, or you're interested in what it was like to live in his shadow, this documentary is a must see.

This film was recommended to me by a friend, who told me it was worth watching. I was very surprised, in that I was actually very impressed with it. I found it to be a very thought provoking and insightful look at the economic issues that affect the lives of many people in Latin America. There is a strong sense of frustration, despair and despair of the people who live in the poverty that the film explores. However, I have to disagree with a lot of the opinions that have been expressed in this film. Some of the points that are made are only views that are probably not correct, but they are also not the views of those who have experienced these issues. In fact, I think this film's viewpoint is probably even closer to the reality of what it was like in the past. However, the overall message of the film is to be aware of the problems that our world is facing and to try to change your own attitude to the problems that are facing you. This is not easy and it is an ongoing process. It's easy to say that the problem of global warming has been solved or at least greatly reduced. However, it is the fact that people are still suffering the consequences of the problems that are so difficult to solve. We are still dependent on oil to get around. The problem is not solved and it is still out there, waiting to be solved.

The film is very well made, the cinematography is wonderful, and the music is superb. It is very well balanced and allows the viewer to see just what life in the ghettos is really like. The director does a fantastic job of depicting the daily life of the ghetto youth, with many other films that I have watched, he does a very similar job here. He is really interesting in portraying the struggles of the women and of the men. The most well done part of the film is the interview with the "novelist" Jappelli. It is truly chilling and at times very shocking, although I admit I was expecting more violence from this film. It is the view that is rarely given by the cinema, which has always been a very powerful tool for influencing public opinion. This film is based on a true story, which I suppose is true, but the portrayal of the ghetto by the director is very accurate and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to see a true story. I have enjoyed many of his films, and I hope he continues to make more films. It was so well done and I highly recommend it.

A must watch! The reason for the amazing thing I wrote in the first paragraph. No other documentary could do so much to explain the things that really matter. Fascinated by the title, I read all the other comments, and was very impressed. I was even more impressed when I started to watch it. The explanation of the birth of the "modern" States was so beautifully explained. It was like a Divine and Holy message to all citizens of the "modern" countries. It was amazing! I do not want to spoil this movie for you, because I cannot help it, but I think it is extremely important for all of us to read this book. It has some really important things that you should know. It's definitely a must watch!

I think that it was never so obvious, that all the heroes were sick and were a legend. That we need to use a whole life to know how hard they worked to give us what we have, and what they can give us and what they are still giving. That all they did was to make us see things, which will be better, for the rest of our lives. But, it will be better, for some of us, for some of them, for some of them. It is a good film. If you like the hero, you will like the film. If you do not like the hero, you will not like the film. I gave it 10. It is not one of the best films, but it is not bad either. I recommend it to everybody.

This movie is so refreshingly different from everything I've seen before. It's certainly the most original I've ever seen. What made me excited about this movie was that it was done by a guy who is a scientist, who's probably the most accurate and knowledgeable biochemist I've seen in years, and he does not agree with the many opinions about the toxicity of GMOs. He says that the genetic material used in the food and agriculture industry is not a threat, that they are a tool to increase crop yields, and that the majority of people in the world that eat GM crops will get sick, but the first GMO that we eat will be the one we eat right before we die. He doesn't think that it's a big deal. This is an excellent movie that you should watch at least once, and that has been on my must-see list for years, because it is absolutely mind-blowing!

I agree with all the other comments on this film. This film is by far the best documentary about the Armenian Genocide I have ever seen. When the first film was released it was talked about in a derogatory manner by the Armenians because they were not told the truth. The fact that this documentary was made only a few years after the Genocide itself was not known by the Armenians. This documentary shows that Armenians are very smart and very capable of learning the truth about the Armenian Genocide. The other comments on this film say it was just "fiction". It was not a fiction, it was a true story. This documentary shows that it was a very hard subject to cover. We hear about the situation of the Armenians during the war and what happened during the genocide. In the beginning they tell about the Armenian genocide and the people who were killed. As the film goes on you learn more about the Armenian Genocide. At the end of the movie they show people who were interviewed in the documentary were so proud of it. Some of the interviewees were just as shocked to see what had happened as the people in the documentary. At the end of the movie you see the people who were interviewed with their tears streaming down their face. I was truly moved. I think this documentary should be shown in every history class in school and all those who are interested in knowing more about the Armenian Genocide should watch it.

The camera-work is done in a beautiful way. Every scene has a unique quality. There's no precise setting, no construction, no extraneous details. Every film tells a story with very specific parameters. There are some movies that do this very well. I don't know what the opposite is, but this one does it pretty well.

I'll start by saying that I am not a fan of the British music scene in general. I have seen and listened to some fantastic British musicians, notably Bob Geldof, Johnny Cash, the Smiths, The White Stripes and the Joy Division. I have also heard of a lot of great American musicians, notably the Sex Pistols, Steve Jones, The Clash, the Kinks and (the) Velvet Underground. I was one of the few Brits in the audience at the film screening in Amsterdam where the documentary was shown. I thought that the whole "British" thing was completely worthless, as it was also made by people who hated the British music scene. The film is a must see for anyone who likes to look at the music industry, or has an interest in music in general. It is well researched and gives an insight into the lives of the Beatles and the early 1970s British rock scene. It is also well made and stylishly shot. The director of the film is Michael Grunwald, a filmmaker of over thirty years of experience and a veteran of the music industry. This film is a true tribute to the musical scene and it is my hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did.

As many have noted, this movie is beautifully done. It provides a candid, unsparing portrait of an otherwise well-intentioned but sadly flawed Italian school system. Unfortunately, the film was critically maligned for what it portrays as a lack of "originality." It's true that this is a very different approach to storytelling than the one taken in many other recent documentaries, but the subject is a sensitive one, and in order to tell the story it is necessary to be able to do so in a very clear and specific way. In fact, the documentary is so good that it can be very difficult to take on board the many points of view that are presented. Perhaps this is a form of cultural criticism; perhaps this is simply a movie that, despite its shortcomings, is so good that its flaws can not be tolerated. Regardless of what the motivation is, the film shows the tragic truth that, in Italy and other countries with large and diverse student populations, it is not enough to just provide education but to provide the education that students need. Sadly, this is not the case in many schools. School systems must be able to implement the kind of measures that the film explores. The majority of schools in the US only provide a short-term learning environment, and if these are not adequate to meet the needs of students, we see people committing suicide in their school. This is not the case in Italy. Most schools are quite progressive in setting out a time for self-discovery, but a good education is the product of a much longer period of time, and this is the case. The film shows the mental and physical burden on the students as they grapple with the consequences of a harsh environment. They are often traumatized by their school experience. And it is not because they have not been allowed to reach the level of consciousness to which they are accustomed, but because they have had to work at a level that they are not ready to reach. This film is a must see for anyone who wants to find out what really happens in Italian schools, and it is a must see for anyone who wants to learn more about the situation in the US and other countries.

This is the best documentary I've ever seen in a long time. It is an absolute must watch. The story is truly remarkable. We need more stories like this. This is the first movie to be nominated for many international awards. I cannot wait to see more of this. Watch this movie!
