Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars
Born with two tiny, misshapen arms due to the toxic side effects of Thalidomide, Niko von Glasow attempts to find 11 others like him to pose nude for a calendar photo shoot. Neither stooping to cheap emotional manipulation nor pussyfooting around candid questions about sex, spirituality and the definition of normal, the filmmaker’s irreverent directness with his subjects makes for a savagely funny and bluntly insightful portrait of those who live with disfigurement. Drop the impotent Michael Moore–esque exposé on the company who manufactured the drug, and this moving doc would, in fact, be perfect.
