The people may not have lines, but they speak, correct? Documentary or narrative, is the only way I see this working with real people. I don't see this working for telling a story with actors where the actors have no lines. Sometimes in movies, narratives are overlaid over a story, but for any decent movie, the actors do have lines... A good example of this is the movie Babe, about the fiesty sheep-herding pig. :D

What I really hate are depictions by actors where an event is portrayed as recreation of the event, as sometimes portrayed in real-life crime shows, where it is all reenacted, but they are trying to make it look like it's the real original event (if I've managed to make myself clear). :):)
