This is must viewing for anyone who has ever wanted to capture the family history, or just honest answers about the family, and come up against a relative who couldn't give a hoot about history or ancestors, and says what happened in the family is "Nobody's Business." Berliner, the father, here protests constantly, yet we can read behind his lines, partly because he is a lonely man, and partly because his son catches the "self-revealing narrator" aspects of his protest. According to one account of the public screening of this sweet film, Alan's father tells a relative that it is the happiest night of his life. Knowing this before I watched it made me see it through that lens, which made it all the more moving.

Alan Berliner is an Emmy award winning Documentarian who makes extremely personal movies and this is his best. It's a film that shows everyone has an interesting story. That everyone is someone deep inside and that everyone really has much to say whether they want to or not.

Alan decides to make a film about the most antagonistic and difficult interviewee there has ever been put on film: his father. He believes that no one wants to hear his story and that no one should care about it. But his story is fascinating, his life so full of events, happy and sad. It's the kind of film where you watch it and your outlook on life changes. A terrific, poignant, and wonderful film that leaves a sweet taste in your mouth.

Alan makes us care about his family and it is so easy to relate to. The use of home videos and archives footage makes for a beautiful documentary.
