If you ever have a chance to take someone else's identity and lead their life, would you like to?
It's a twisted question and frankly it's very difficult to answer to.
This is not the first movie/documentary, I have watched that deals with impersonators. Taking lives is the one that deals with this issue as well but that movie fails at many points and turns out to be more cheezy than ... read more

This was a stunning documentary movie about the 1997 incident. Tells the story of a Texas boy who returned home after the 3 years of disappearance. Created a lot thrilling excitation that equals to any masterpiece crime-thriller movie. Particularly to say it is what Hitchcock would have chosen to do if he was alive today.

“This was a stunning documentary movie about the 1997 incident. Tells the story of a Texas boy who returned home after the 3 years of disappearance. Created a lot thrilling excitation that equals to any masterpiece crime-thriller movie. Particularly to say it is what Hitchcock would have chosen to do if he was alive today. Sadly, it was a documentary movie, that does not really stop anyone from a watch. It is one the documentary you should watch if you are a Hitchcock fan, especially if you are interested in the crime-thrillers that deals about identity crises. As it is a true story, it was unbelievable.

"Kuten nimikin kertoo niin dokkari kadonneen pojan paikan ottavasta huijarista, joka 'onnistui' huijaaman pojan perhettäkin."

"03.06. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Bart Leyton Truth is stranger than fiction - the motion picture. A French guy takes on the identity of a long-lost American teenager, managing to even fool the family. This could be very good, similarly to Exit Through the Gift Shop, but I find the storytelling daft, especially with the lame dramatizations. The hilariously bad subtitles on the Finnish dvd also detracted a whole lot from the experience. "

"20.2. Hämmentävän kiehtova tositarina, jossa on kummallisia käänteitä enemmän kuin keskiverrossa Hollywood-mysteerissä, mutta dokkarin manipulatiivinen ja dramatisoitu kerrontatapa tuntuu jokseenkin halvalta aihepiiriä ajatellen."

"I started watching this movie with like "whatever" attitude like yeah yeah, there is going to be an imposter and well he is going to go through stuff and all but 5 mins in and I was completely engrossed in this documentary. I wanted to know what was going to happen. How did he do this? How is he going to go through this situation and all and this was a thrilling and interesting ride that kept me engaged till the end. It fascinates me in lot of ways. Seeing someone pull through something like th"

"Without giving away ANY of the plot twists in this documentary; its quite true that fact is stranger than fiction. This was one of the very most intense films I watched all year. Edited perfectly to build suspense, shot with great skill and totally gripping. I wouldn't be surprised if this is talked about during awards season for Best Documentary."

"A fascinating documentary about a despicable individual who took the identity of a missing American teenager and played with the emotions of the teens family to convince them he was their son. The story is build up like in a thriller, it is very well told and it will keep you glued to the screen, wanting to know what is going to happen next. You just cannot believe what goes down, it feels like a plot in a Hollywood movie. It's an incredible story where doubt is cast over the sanity and honesty "
