    Cute and poignant. A simple watch that isn't entirely life-changing or demanding, but doesn't really try to be either. I really liked the concept behind the project (i.e. a 'crowdsourced' documentary), and was really fascinated by the idea of finding beauty in the little, unremarkable moments in life. Not really something I'd run and go recommend to someone, but a pleasant watch nonetheless.

    Who knew watching a mother hold her newborn in her arms could bring you to tears? Who knew that even the youngest and poorest of children in Peru dream of owning an Apple computer? Who knew there are moonshiners in Romania?

    Life in a Day is a wonderful way of just garnering a taste of the world at its simplest

    This might have been more interesting if they tried to make more of a point, or if they came back to any of their subjects. The one thing that really annoyed me was the sound effects that they put in. There were so many sounds there that simply wouldn't have been captured with simple camera mics. Flies buzzing, slight wind sounds while skydiving, and others that were just too "perfect" to be captured in the moment. It just felt to…

    Interesting concept, and fairly well executed considering more than 4,500 hours of footage was submitted for this one. Some of the highlighted people were a little out there to really connect with, and the music left much to be desired. But overall, and interesting reflection on the 'mundaneness' of everyday life, showing the beauty therein, and what parts of humanity are universal to every culture (routines, love, fear, etc.). Worth a watch!

    It's a cool concept and an impressive project to take on. But this great idea works better in theory than on a feature-length movie in my opinion.

    For a movie showing images from all over the globe I think movies such as Baraka and Samsara work better.

    En una famosa película de los Hermanos Kuchar, dos hermanos de San Francisco dedicados al sublimado estético de diversas cintas clásicas de los 50 (melodramas de Douglas Sirk, cine negro, comedias kitsch tipo Frank Tashlin, etc.), se decía una famosa frase: 'En esta vida puedes hacer tres cosas: el bien, el mal o nada'. Pues, precisamente, esta es una película que trata sobre la nada.

    Les pongo en antecedentes.
    Debido a ese espacio web de continuo esperpento…

    Amazing documentary from different perspectives of people from various religions and cultures around the world accounting their life in a day as the title suggests

    Indulgent and lazy mess. It aims for some pseduo profound "everything is, like, the same man. Like, we totally are all people and aren't so different man" type claptrap. As awful as that damnable Babies films.
