excellent documentary film
19 July 2001 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best documentary film I have ever seen. I have watched it for more than 10 times, specially the scene when the animals are drunk and the way they walk back home. This is a film which every body can watch and enjoy it.
