Storyline

Jenny and her six-year-old son, Tommy, are flying over the Belgian Congo when they are forced to bail out and become separated. Jenny lands in a dense jungle and is rescued by a safari headed by two wild-animal collectors, but Tommy is not found. He has amnesia and is lost, but is adopted by Zamba, a huge gorilla. He lives happily with his new family. Jenny comes back with a searching party, and Zamba, the gorilla mother, is determined to protect Tommy from his real mother.

Chimpy Bissu Fest
3 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is awesome, it has lots of great gorilla shots. A good one for BEAU fans as well.

So many wonderful Silverbacks.

I love Bissus.

I gave it ten out of ten or Ten Bannans out of ten Bannans Me Billy Bissu. The greatest thing about this film (apart from Bridges of course) is the chimp action. Everyone who loves monkeys should see this film. If you are too poor to get to a zoo or do not live in a monkey inhabited area then see this film. I know most people see monkeys all the time, but this film will show you them in a different light. ALthough I say Bridges is the best part of this film, this is a small lie because ZAMBA is. ME ZAMBA.

Lawal.

Lawal.

Yobo. What a Defender Yobo is!
