      Caio Bad documentary. Such a shame that they completely wasted a 30 years incredible career that is Sergio Vieira's. The documentary has three pillars: 1. Love affairs (like in a telenovela); 2. Military rescue attempt (way too detailed with soldiers explained how they used ropes and stuff); 3. His charisma (which they make sound as if it was his only talent). The documentary could have shown all of those impressive UN peacekeeping operations and how they have been managed in such complicated circumstances, all the team of experts and tactics to engage negotiations in conflict environments. But no...they decided to provide a weird, poorly researched and ultra-superficial presentation of his last couple of years. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/04/22 Full Review Audience Member Reverently, engrossing, sad but inspiring. Sergio's 1st and last words in the film says everything we need to know about the mission of the dedicated, selfless, brilliant work of the United Nation's leaders and workers. Beautifully directed and filmed - a true tribute to Sergio, and, those who risked their lives to save him and spoke so eloquently about their time with him doing his best to indeed ''save the world.'' Great documentary about a truly Good Man. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Poignant, straightforward doc. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Sergio is a touching documentary revolving around the last hours of Sergio Vieira de Mello's life while delving into his charismatic personality and amazing past. I liked the structure of this film. So many documentaries (well, at least, those I have seen) tend to follow a traditional timeline, but Sergio bounces back and forth between Sergio's personal history, his accomplishments within the UN, interviews from friends and family, and the accounts from two of the men who attempted to save his life. "Touching" may not fully encompass the multitude of emotions that this film touches upon. In the end, a profound sense of loss- not only for this man's life but for how many other lives may have been affected by his presence, was what I was left with once the credits rolled. I would highly recommend this film for people who enjoy documentaries or are interested in recent history... though I must admit I don't know if this would be of the type I could watch repeatedly due to its heavy emotional nature. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastiskt inspirerande och rörande, även om filmen nästan bara handlar om hur han dog. Och en dokumentär som inte ställer en enda kritisk fråga är väl ingen dokumentär? Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Top bloke. Top doco. A real tearjerker.

      John Anderson Variety Barker takes structural chances, eschewing the predictable for a more unorthodox film, and it works. Jan 23, 2009 Full Review Cathleen Roundtree Boxoffice Magazine As tragic as his death was, the film celebrates the indomitable spirit, dignity and resilience of Sergio Vieira de Mello.
