Wonderful and rare film!!
28 July 2008 | by (Fort Wayne, IN) – See all my reviews

I just watched an older VHS recording I had made of this movie when it debuted on The Discovery Channel. This is a marvelous film full of gorgeous, eye-popping cinematography and spot-on camera-work. The previous posts complaining of no music...what the hell were they watching? Stewart Copeland composed a great music score for this film that's over 74 minutes long!! How can you watch this film and not notice the music? I must go out of my way to ask anyone visiting this site to completely ignore the previous 2 posts and go out of your way to seek a copy of this movie and escape into the lush and savage beauty of Ngorongoro. This is easily one of the most masterful nature films ever made and I think it's sad that Discovery Channel didn't do more to promote this film and make it available on DVD--here's hoping for a Blu-Ray version. Hugo--God rest your soul--you are gone but not forgotten and this film is a true gem to remember you for!
