  How does it sometimes for a successful documentary film requires the audience to be touched, the two leading Swiss filmmaker Silvia Hazel Beck and Erich Langjahr before birth in her film, whose title no simple questions unanswered, which event is at the center. Whereby the title when it takes precisely the issue here describes only the endpoint, but the film is a much earlier and accompanied by two women and their families throughout their pregnancy through to birth and ultimate. We see the women and their partners in visits to the midwife at the Schwangerschaftsgymanstik, Nordic walking and other activities to prepare for the birth. And in the end we are seeing a new man comes into the world in almost real time in the last minutes of a long time the process is concluded by a new life. made as simple sounds of the title of the film and the narrative may sound so simple concept too – only those familiar with documentaries, and perhaps even what can appreciate that behind this seemingly simple film much more lies, as we see at first glance. The intimacy, the birth of broadcasting, the result is a huge openness of the expectant mothers on the one hand and a seismographic sensitivity of the two other directors. How else would you explain that the camera at one of the most intimate moments in the life of a man so naturally it may be that it avoids pathos and every indiscretion that they quite naturally observed and recorded something that we normally only not remains hidden, even if we are directly involved? keep track Who had the good fortune to the time of pregnancy and the act of birth itself and experience, whether as an expectant mother or father-in-law as a support to which these images and the striking feature of these lessons transported very familiar occur. And this is the moment at which one dissolves as spectators on the actual stories from real people who Silvia Hazel Beck and her partner Erich have Langjahr accompanies a long time – they are at the moment of deepest grief and the greatest happiness to the prototype the miracle of birth, without that, this moment is clouded in an unpleasant way or penetrance. The balance, find the two filmmakers and the trust that are brought forward by the sitter, one can estimate, given the intimacy of those moments hardly high enough. Sun birth is not just a film worth seeing on the pregnancy and its endpoint, but also the document of an intimate relationship and a deep trust between two documentary filmmakers (which, incidentally, also have children together) and the people they portrayed. The birth of a people, the film is impressive, is probably the most normal thing in the world. And also a moment of magic, familiarity, proximity, similar to that experienced in life are rare.
