It's like a gently distressed company film blown up to feature length.

A delicious, compact viewing experience - like a rich, smooth shot of espresso.

Straight-up corporate propaganda. But its uplifting, powerful, well-meaning message might be enough to win over even some skeptics.

The film would have benefitted had it gone more in depth with many of these interviews. Several interesting topics ... are also mentioned but not explored.

The film has its interest, but maybe because of its association with Illy, it also has a somewhat removed, self-congratulatory corporate quality; it should have gone deeper.
