A Different Kind of Nature Documentary
2 June 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I like watching discovery channel and TV-series on wild life but this movie was unlike anything I had ever seen before. The stars here are of course the animals and the camera follows them everywhere.

The movie is part nature documentary, part comedy and part drama. Touching and poignant in parts, it is a treat for nature lovers. The best part is the comedy of course, we haven't seen the animals depicted like that ever. It is like candid camera for animals, but much better.

The Narrator Paddy O'Byrne has done a wonderful job. He went to do narration for "The Gods Must Be Crazy" parts I and II, both directed by the Jamie Uys. If you like this movie I recommend both parts of "The Gods Must Be Crazy". The first part even manages excels this movie.
