BEAUTIFUL SHOT DOCUMENTARY
2 May 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Not as exiting as "Keine Platz für wilde Tieren", but beautiful shot documentary that is a bit too loosely structured. Simple but clear trick devices explain where we are and what is investigated; no need for complicated CAD here. What very well comes across is that the makers' first interest was Serengeti and their second the documentary. How many animals are living in Serengeti now?
