Superb Nature Documentary
18 October 2006 | by (Providence, RI, USA) – See all my reviews

I watched the film on the high-definition cable channel INHD2 last night, and was glad I caught it. The remarkable work of beavers is beautifully filmed, including underwater and inside-dam footage that is hard to believe. The narration is excellent--intelligent, restrained, not in the least sappy. Ditto for the musical score. This production was originally for IMAX, and it must have been wonderful to see it in one of those theaters. Other animals besides beavers make appearances, too, including a rabbit, skunk, and bear. The director, photographers, and all who contributed are due thanks from nature lovers. Great short for kids and adults!
