The production filming schedule for this movie was originally project estimated to require six months. In total, it took seven years to film the movie, four of these were spent completing the principle photography. Shooting was delayed at various times for varying reasons such, the flooding of the ranch being the main one. The on-set disasters literally added years to the shooting schedule. See more »
There's nothing fake about this film. It's shot beautifully, on real locations. Tippi Hedren and Melanie Griffith head a talented and fearless cast, who literally throw themselves in the jaws of the beasts over and over again. The picture has a terrific rhythm and is fun to watch but I couldn't help dwelling upon how dangerous a film it must have been to make. Although there were some poignant and funny moments like the scenes where dauntless John Marshall tries to pull his boat away from the shore but the lion keeps pulling it back or when he hides in a barrel filled with water and the lions begin to drink from it. The story seems simplistic in structure but is really quite profound in the way Marshall draws sympathy for the animals, brilliantly shot by John De Bont. The closeups of the dying beasts will bring tears to your eyes. This is must see for anyone who believes that filmmaking is artificial and safe.
