The Taboos of the Documentary Film. The Work of Henri Storck
(Bert Hogenkamp) The Low Countries - 2000, № 8, pp. 270-271

A true documentary maker will never violate human suffering, grief and death, nor the intimate act of lovemaking, whereas there is scarcely a feature film made without an often very explicit reference to love and death. Hence, Storck at his best is like this: intimately involved with the events, without ever indulging in voyeurism.
