      Audience Member UBUNTU is not only for Linux lovers. I think Madonna should've marketed it this way. Her father is B.S. in Physics, and was an engineer after all. Great movie that wasn't big enough. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member 'I Am Because We Are' (2008) is a spellbinding look at into the challenging lives of Malawi orphans. Despite its upsetting qualities, this is a documentary worth watching. It can possibly change the way you see our urbanized lifestyle. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a very worthy documentary, I think clearly for years Madonna has supported charities without banging the drum for her own purpose, here is no exception, its a real climps into Hiv Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member When you hear things it's one thing... but when you see it you realize how much you didn't know. I'm sure that movie was a very light version of what's really going on there. Sad. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Madonna'nin metinlerini yazdigi ve seslendirdigi bu belgeseli herkes izlemeli..!
