Yeah, it is always the jealous ones who do this crap.

They even get on here and try to tell people how much life is better in other communities outside of TV.

All I can say is that when we are at our Villages home I NEVER wish we could get back north, but when we are up north I am always counting the days until I can get back to the Villages. I am NEVER bored while in the Villages, other places not so much. Who cares what anyone else's opinion of the Villages is?

Valerie Blankenbyl appears to be a "twenty something" from Austria. Why does she want to make a film about US???

And further;............

Ich bin ziemlich skeptisch, was das Motiv angeht. Natürlich MONEY, aber ich denke darüber nach, wie ein junger Mensch wirklich die Fähigkeit hat, die echten USA zu SEHEN.

Ja.

All the people interviewed are non-TV residents.

They are all complainers who can't get in and are simply jealous.

Give me a break...

Only been in the Villages a short time but things are fine for me inside the “bubble”. Although I refer to the Villages as the Reservation.

I like the video of the young lady talking about her upcoming movie because she smiled and did not have that superior judgemental look so common among media people these days.

She seemed fascinated by what she had observed in The Villages. We look forward to seeing her movie.

Any production that doesnt reinforce that you live in paradise and made the best decision of your life is immediately panned.

She said nothing wrong. Yep...we live in a bubble

This is a different documentary. Your thinking of the documentary called "Some Kind of Heaven".

I watched this 90 minute documentary. A month ago it was streamed online at a film festival in Switzerland. Let me put it this way: This documentary has a very critical basic attitude especially regarding the rapid and unstoppable growth of "The Villages". All the beauties, pleasures and advantages were not shown to their best advantage.

"Man muss diesen Film nicht gesehen haben. Es gibt schönere und sinnvollere Möglichkeiten um 90 Minuten zu verbringen."
