It left out the highs and lows of the culture. It didn't have any festivals or celebrations, but also no sequences about jails etc. It focused on a group of garment workers which if you know anything about U.S. garment workers, you know is a very depressed, bored, and overworked industry. The women appeared to be more happy, educated, and healthy than garment workers in the U.S. It was O.K. for what it is claims to be, "A Day in the Life", however it's so hard to find a documentary filmed in DPRK I watched it looking for a bigger picture but couldn't find it. I guess its like if you were a DPRK citizen interested in how the U.S. operates as an actor on the geo-political stage and you watched a documentary on the day in the life of an American garment worker, I mean what do you expect. But overall it was well done, I think the government of the DPRK is so interesting, I was hoping to learn about that. It was what it said it was, "A Day in the Life".
This documentary was filmed while carefully being monitored by North Korean officials. Although it is not accurately portraying "a day in the life" of an average North Korean citizen, it does give an idea of what the government perceives as an ideal life for their citizens. Although it purposely left out narration unlike typical documentaries, It is worth watching.
