Blu-ray Review: ‘Life, Above All’ Takes Child’s Eye View of AIDS Pandemic

Life Above All Blu-ray

CHICAGO – According to multiple reports from the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Oliver Schmitz’s artfully lensed, sensitively acted film received one of the warmest receptions. Set in a modern South African village, “Life, Above All” is one of several recent pictures aiming to illustrate that an HIV-positive diagnosis is no longer a death sentence. It’s a film of grand statements delivered with quiet power.
