This documentary is a good portrait of The Stones during an important time in their career. It focuses on the reasons the Stones had to leave, their reactions to the news and the experience of living and working in southern France. That being said, I felt the documentary really brushed over the recording process and the songs themselves to be anything other than introductory. I wanted to know more about the writing process, more about the recording process, more about the actual creation of this album versus the side stories of who and what they were doing while working on the album. The length also is a little too short and may explain why those things are addressed more fully.
