A good movie

I came across this documentary while watching a talk-show where a Dutch actress was mentioning some very interesting movies and this movie was one of those she chose to talk about. Eventually, it is a very peculiar and interesting documentary dealing with a rather unsettling subject.

A family in crisis is "captured" through home video in this searing documentary about the Friedmans, an upper-middle-class family who found their world turned upside down when father and son were charged with child molestation in 1987.

"11.7, PC Capturing The Friedmans näyttää mielenkiintoisella tavalla ympäristön käyttäytymisen, kun arvostettu yhteisön jäsen, Arnold Friedman, paljastuukin pedofiiliksi. Vaikka kaikkien jälkikasvu ei uhriksi olisi joutunutkaan, ollaan asiasta silti varmoja ja yritetään kanssaeläjien toimesta syöttää sekä vanhemmille että lapselle faktana sitä asiaa, että jos lapsi on ollut tekemisissä pedofiliasta epäillyn atk-opettajan kanssa, niin silloin hyväksikäyttöä on tapahtunut"

"Home movies, sibling solidarity, wild allegations of sexual abuse, and the power of suggestion all wage battle over the truth, forever disfiguring the face of a seemingly normal Jewish family."

" 6.28 Unforgettable documentary of a family faced with scandal when the father is arrested for child pornography and possible child fornication. Director Andrew Jarecki's captured the family Friedmans at its best and worse, a must see film."
