Review of "Catfish (DVD)"
I'm Tom I'm a self-employed tennis coach, I Like Sport- tennis + football, films, TV and a variety of music.
The film is a documentary about 1 man, Yaniv Schulman and how he becomes attached to a family over Facebook. An 8 year old girl who is an incredible artist; her older sister an attractive model and the mother who has raised them. His 2 best friends record the saga that unfolds.The first 40 minutes will have you thinking "what am I watching?". The last 40 minutes you will have you thinking "Oh My God". Thats all I will say about the film. Its an incredible film and will leave you speechless.
First watch the trailer:http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi769787417/
That will get you hooked from the start. Then sit back and prepare to be mesmerized as the mayhem unfolds. You'll go from being tense, to confused, to surprised and back to more confusion.This film is special and whether it is true or not, it is still amazing.

Manufacturer's product descriptionLove and identity become twisted across the lines of the Internet in this documentary from filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. Nev Schulman is a photographer who one day received a surprising e-mail message -- Abby, an eight-year-old girl in Michigan, had seen his picture in a newspaper and wanted permission to paint a portrait from it. Nev gave his OK, and when he was given a copy of the painting, he was struck by how good it was, assuming that the girl was either a genius or a fraud. Nev tried to contact Abby's family, and somehow ended up in contact with Megan, Abby's sexy 19-year-old sister. As Nev fell into an increasingly complicated on-line relationship with Megan, he decided it was time to meet her in person, but when he travelled to Michigan and tracked her down, Nev learned that Abby and Megan's family were not at all what he expected them to be. Ariel Schulman, Nev's brother, began filming his brother's adventures from his first contact with Abby, and in CATFISH he and Henry Joost tell this strange story from beginning to end.
