Moofies - Catfish (2010)

EXPECTATIONS: All I know is that this is a documentary that played at Cannes with an odd title and I'm curious.

REALITY: Ariel and Henry are two film makers who work in the same studio as Ariel's brother Nev, a photographer. Ariel and Henry start to film Nev when he begins an online relationship with a young girl, Abby, who has sent him a painting she has done of one of his photos. Through facebook and phone conversations Nev gets to know Abby's whole family and becomes close with the young painter's older sister.

This seemingly interesting and nice story turns out to be something completely unexpected. The fly on the wall style documentary captures the turn of events extremely well, and I think the subjects were handled appropriately and in a very caring way.

I can't say too much for fear of spoiling the film; that being said I will watch this again. It was fantastic.
