@Clara Jain Definitely yes they should. Perhaps every 5-10 years a new movie like this. Hell, maybe every year, why not?

Makes me think how beautiful the diversity between each ones life is and that there are so many ways to live it - and on the other hand, that we are all the same with the same everyday problems, issues, plans and visions, which make and form life worth living.
Jeff Ensley (5 years ago)
The question "What do you fear?" is addressed so honestly by some of the people in the film that I've been moved to tears every time I've watched it. We are so amazingly fragile and we try so hard to appear tough... all that ends up doing is building walls between ourselves and others.

This film made me question, smile but most of all it made me thankful, thankful to have what I have, and although things aren't great, I'm happy.

@tee bone, no actually it's not, and I'm sorry if you got that impression, you mustn't see what they are trying to show then, I assume. It's very inspiring and gives a beautiful and realistic view of life in a day. Not everything is an insult or aggressive, especially a wonderful film like this. Don't make yourself sound so ignorant, not to offend.
Tee Bone (6 years ago)
I never saw this film, but I have a suspicion that it's main purpose is to shame White Americans.

Sometimes there are situations in your life in which you say: life sucks! When you're frustrated, sad or just annoyed by sth or someone... Then you have to watch this film and your problems end in smoke and you realise how egocentric and superficial you act.... one minute of this film and I am so thankful for being alive, being healthy, being a part of our colorful, multifaceted world.

And plants aren't alive? There is a difference between how we treat them when they are alive. You can't justify any death as good or bad, but cruelty and brutally. Because in the end, everything dies. Don't pity the dead cow... Pity does who treated it badly. The cow was set free the moment it died. We talk like death is our pain... Live you life and enjoy what you love, be it meat or not. Because in the end, that cow gave life to something else. The Circle of life.

The acoustic track on this is 'Jerusalem' by Kieran Leonard, it's worth checking out the full version.

I was wrong, there are Arab stories in there. If this film would be done again, I will definitely participate. My day as an Arab American in NYC.

They do,the part I remember was where the man had a son that he had to keep tied up because he wanders away, among other interesting things. He concluded his explanation of his life by saying 'But we are alive'.
stephxnie (6 years ago)
i loved this movie!
sosoathomeworking (6 years ago)
I would have watch this movie if it did not exclude a region of 22 countries called the Arab World; they are part of the plant earth too. I am just disappointed how the Media always do not show the normal life of the Arab countries only they show propaganda or no show. My two cents!!!

They should do this again some time because a few years ago I didn't get the memo:(

Why did I had to be in the movie:(
danbrownwhat (6 years ago)
I thought this was so great, we focus way too much on what's going on in our own lives. So strange how we are the centre of all of our own universes, and it's the same EVERYWHERE.
DanishGamer (6 years ago)
Thank you:)
Veronika B (7 years ago)
I don't know what to say, it was very contrasted, but didn't idealise anything, it showed our world for what it truly is. A job well done, would love to see something of this kind again.

Original DARK KNIGHT RISES trailer in the responses!!! I'm just amped for this movie and a huge Dark Knight fan so i put this together, if batmans not your thing dont worry about it, otherwise... really hope you like it!!
Stan Stanson (7 years ago)
Why the fuck do you kind of people have to ruin nice things by reminding us of shit we already know!? "OMG This video is too happy, I have to tell people that a kid somewhere died!!". Just save that kind of shit for other videos where that kind of shit is actually relevant. And for your information I am neither fat, or a pedophile...so go fuck yourself.
Stan Stanson (7 years ago)
For fuck sake! Piss off
Rhys Ashwell (7 years ago)
So, I have to say, heading into this trailer from a cartoon dog and someone yelling SHMACKOOOOOOOS really kind of ruined it for me...
