'This important collection displays breathtaking variety and inventiveness.'
- Paul French, TIME OUT LONDON

'...linked only by theme, are many emotionally moving pieces that powerfully evoke the tragic day...
...One of the most shocking segments... ranks among Loach’s finest film work.'
- Deborah Young, VARIETY

'A remarkable film... an extraordinary mixture of ideas and genres... each segment embodies a fresh voice
...Sean Penn's beautiful and moving short'
- Jon Henley, THE GUARDIAN'

'...measured, wide-ranging and humanist response... ...a collection of work that spans the globe and a spectrum of emotions from bitter irony to anguish and poignancy. The best segment in the entire collection comes from Ken Loach... incisive, sharply focused. A touching performance from Ernest Borgnine illuminates Sean Penn’s story'

'Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu... a masterly sound collage. Mira Nair’s tale... deeply moving'
- Tristan Burke, HOTDOG

'Ken Loach’s superb, standout entry. Loach offers a stunning indictment of America’s double standards'
- Damon Wise, EMPIRE

'Fascinating... both a moving memorial and a round table discussion on celluloid, and a fine example of just how thought-provoking cinema can be. Alejandro Inarritu’s powerful elegy... Sean Penn’s moving study of loss... Makhmalbaf’s delicate, thoughtful film...'
- Nick Johnstone, UNCUT

'It’s impossible not to be moved by the sheer power of these 11 short tales...
Ken Loach... amazing. Idrissa Ouedraogo’s poignant comedy... a clever tale.
Affecting, thought-provoking and dammit, entertaining... this is recommended viewing'
- Neil Corry, FILM REVIEW
