Very impressed, a very wonderful documentary about an amazing family
3 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I would have given a 10 but I am one of those people that doesn't believe anything is "perfect", blame my business classes..

Nevertheless this movie is amazing, I've never heard of Richard before and I'm a magician myself. I was absolutely blown away by his story and I strongly suggest it, it's an amazing story.
