From its opening admission of motive – Damon Gameau gave up sugar to impress a girl – to the hip hop closing number (yes, you read that right) That Sugar Film is a long way from a standard documentary, whatever that might be.

Will certainly appeal to kids with its colour, movement, clarity and humour.

My main problem with this documentary, which Gameau says is a quest for definitive answers, is that it is so one-sided.

How far you can swallow Gameau's thesis may also depend on your reaction to the man himself...
