REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..this amazing compilation of videos all shot the same day around the globe is one for the ages..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
4 of 5

“..the quality of the film surprisingly good, but one can't help thinking that a dozen different films could have been made with the material, each as intriguing as the other..”
by Derek Malcolm [This Is London]
3 of 5

“..an impressive achievement on several levels that's by turns moving, funny and awe-inspiring, though it's also a little too manipulative and over-produced in places..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
“..a surprisingly coherent whole..”
by Robert Koehler [Variety]
3 of 5

“..a simple-but-brilliant conception, for sure, and, at its best, the amalgam of footage works like a rhythmic visual poem, with sections structured beautifully to musical accompaniment..”
by Andrew Pulver [The Guardian]
