This caught my attention right away because of the art, history, and more specifically The Second World War and architecture. The story was captivating; a brilliant mind somehow trapped in the war. What made this so special was the way the director engaged the viewer with a dialogue among the characters involved. Talking to Erich Mendelhson or Louise would have been impossible, but this is what voice talent do best; they bring life to a project. She was able to bring Louise back to life through her voice, as did the voice of Erich Mendelsohn, played by Sean Shaffer from Voice123. Simply reading a script would have been a cold approach, but the way she did it transmitted the emotions behind the story. I was not only drawn to the documentary because of the subject matter, but because the characters felt alive.
