"... Passion is the first word that comes to mind watching STAMMERS, the heart-warming portrait Joke Nyssen made - with the patience of a saint - of her brother Jef, an ostensibly incurable stutterer who, with great difficulty and equal determination, gradually learns to gain control and win himself a place in society... Two years of shooting and 150 hours of footage have been distilled into a document brimming with affection, as pure and tender as the portrait French actress Sandrine Bonnaire made of her sister in 'On m'appelle Sabine'." - Freddy Sartor in Filmmagie

The dvd is available with Dutch, English and French subtitles!
