Like countless others, Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were labeled 'idiots', locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release - the first time in history that anyone had beaten the system. Together they created L'Arche, a commune at the edge of a beautiful forest near Paris. A quiet revolution was born. Now in his 80s, still at L'Arche and revered by some as a living saint, Jean has discovered something that most of us have forgotten - what it is to be human, to be foolish, and to be happy. SUMMER IN THE FOREST invite us to abandon the rat race and forge new friendships. Amid the ancient trees, Philippe, Patrick, Jean and the others welcome us into their lives. If there are rules to break, they will be broken. And if there is a truth to be told, they will tell it. Michel reveals his war-torn past, Andre is desperate for a date, and young David will prove himself a hero in the fight against the forces of evil.

While this documentary focuses on the motivations behind taking on the historical issues in "Going Up State" the filmmakers show the various ways that some people tried to make a profit out of this film. Some of the best things about the documentary are the interviews with the people who tried to take advantage of the film. These were all people who had a lot to gain by promoting the film. This also shows the various ways that the filmmakers, and the media were being misled. The highlight of this documentary is the "How It Happened" segment. This is one of the most interesting parts of the film. The filmmakers go into great detail explaining how some of the key players in the film were able to get their hands on the film and then promote it in such a way that no one knew what to think. The fact that they were able to do this gives a lot of weight to the documentary. While I agree that there is much to be said about how the film was being promoted, I don't think this is what the documentary is about. This is a documentary about how the media has done a poor job of reporting on the history of these issues. This documentary doesn't try to answer the question "How could they not report this?" It doesn't try to answer that question and instead focuses on the issues that they did. I think the problem with the documentary is that it tries to make a lot of claims that are obviously false. I think that the filmmakers are trying to make a lot of claims that are clearly not true and instead are just trying to make a point. I think that the filmmakers should have made more of an effort to tell the story of how these people got the film and how they got into the film business. In the end, this documentary is definitely worth a look. I recommend this documentary to people who are interested in the history of this film and how the media was misleading people about the film. There is some interesting information that this documentary does have and it is certainly worth a look. The documentary does have a few flaws, but I think that the issues that are being discussed are a good enough reason to see this documentary.

I did not find this film to be a documentary at all. I did not feel that any of the individuals were attempting to push the boundaries of what they thought was the truth or could be accepted as reality. I felt that they were trying to document the 'facts' of what they were seeing and hearing. The way they tried to 'explain' this topic and how they attempted to put it in a meaningful way to the viewers was the worst part of the film for me. It was basically a documentary without any real substance or credibility to it. It was just a bunch of people who were saying what they thought was true, without any regard to the possibility that it might be false. I was quite frustrated and I feel like the filmmakers did not try to explain or explain why or how they got this information, they just had it all told for them. I understand that these individuals were trying to do the best they could, but if you are going to try to make a documentary, try to at least put some thought into it, and try to get it to some sort of 'truth' as opposed to just trying to 'tell a story'. I think the filmmakers should have really gotten more specific in the movie and had more evidence or video to back up what they were saying. It's one thing to film what you believe to be happening or to try to piece together what you are seeing. It's quite another to film something that is not happening or something that is not happening. It seemed to me that this movie had a different goal. It was supposed to be 'heartfelt' and it was supposed to show people that it is not just a fairy tale that they are told, but it's possible and there are people out there who can tell you the truth. But in the end it didn't do that. I think the filmmakers should have tried to explain what they were getting at and why they were saying it, but they failed to do so. It seemed that they just said it and never thought about it and it didn't seem like they were trying to make a documentary at all. I think it would have been much better if they had just put some 'proof' or 'evidence' to back up what they were saying. They never provided any, so you don't know if what they were saying was real or not. I don't know if I would go as far as saying that the film was a 'satire', but I would say that it was a poor and poor attempt at trying to make a documentary. The people that made the movie seemed to be in it for the wrong reasons. I do not recommend this movie.

On a rainy Sunday morning in the woods, what I saw was what many saw during the Great Depression. During the 1920's to 1950's, the great depression was the longest recession in history. The average person in the US lost around 12% of their income, and many were unable to buy the things they needed. Many people became homeless, and many others were forced to leave their homes and take what they could to survive. It's amazing to me that people still don't see the devastation the Great Depression caused. Many don't realize that it was not the Great Depression of the 1930's, but the Great Depression of the 1930's and 40's. People did not have money in their pockets and most couldn't even afford to buy food. What I saw during the Great Depression was truly a time of extreme hardship, and it's amazing that we can see this even today. The people in this documentary did not think they were lucky to have survived, but they thought they were very lucky to be alive. The stories of many of the survivors were heart-wrenching. I think the documentary does a good job of bringing back memories of the people who lived during the Great Depression. I think it does a good job of telling the story of how the people lived during this period. I think that if more people knew about the Great Depression, then maybe people would not be as cynical and unfriendly to each other as they are today. I think this documentary was a good documentary and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the Great Depression.
