Very interesting, also unnecessarily manipulative. Telegraphs what you’re supposed to be feeling at all times, which is a shame. A story this interesting doesn’t need to be told in such a calculated way.

An absolutely riveting documentary that goes from "Cool" to "Wow" to "What the heck" to "OMG" to, well, more from there. It's fascinating, intense at times, and extremely well made. The film makers really do well to tell a narrative without foreshadowing too much. Unlike some docs that use the technique, the recreation of old situations with modern footage didn't feel hokey.

I expect it will be among the best documentaries I see all year ("Won't You Be My Neighbour" may prevent it from claiming the crown of best) and among the best films I see all year in any category. Recommended!

A well structured doc that reinforces the scientific notion of nurture versus nature, but is quite heavy handed on the side of the Triplets over the scientific study. Seems unfair to label the study as “Nazi shit”…
