PHOENIX Documentary Film Award 2009

"The elaborate cinematography, the cautious use of music, the linkage between different layers of time - all that makes an outstanding film about a central issue of globalisation: the loss of identity. The filmmakers believe in the power of their images and leave time to have them reveal their impact. The statements of the people portrayed in the film result from the trust the filmmakers have been built during many years. They are documentalists, not voyeurs."
