What happened in 1989 was grandeur. I am not sure what this is called. The first ten minutes, one student leader talked about his childhood which really has nothing to do with the 1989 students' democracy movement. So it is not a 100% documentary about it.
And basically, he spent the whole time talking about himself, he was sort of a narrator for this film. They even found someone who looked like him to act as him when he was a boy. The film would be more effective, if they actually have someone in the background to tell the viewers from the beginning till the end of the student democracy movement and filled it with personal interviews, raw footages, etc.
A good documentary about the movement can easily make viewers cry. This one lacks of the emotional elements. It doe have real shocking footages which I have never seen before.
I watched the DVD, it doesn't have closed caption or English subtitle. Some of the people who appeared in film speak with an accent, so sometimes it is hard to understand them.
