best documentary ever made
10 February 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Biology of Love How and why human beings fall in love may seem mysterious, but Desmond Morris explains the biological reasons we form long-term pairs, as well as our physical response to courtship and mating. The Language of the Body Desmond Morris interprets a wide range of modern gestures, then goes further to uncover a whole new science. In human ethology, researchers study gestures, smiles, stares, and hand motions. The Hunting Ape Man's hunter-gatherer origins are reflected in various ways in modern society. Why is it that some cultures today continue to be omnivorous while other such as South India refuse to eat meat? The Human Zoo Modern cities have been called urban jungles, but human zoos is a more appropriate term. Humans originally lived in groups of 150 or fewer, and our tribal origins show themselves in the way we live today. The Immortal Genes Human adults have a compulsion to have, raise, protect, and educate children. A power struggle occurs as children learn to manipulate their parents in the modern struggle between age and youth. Beyond Survival Humans, more than any other animal, feel a need to express themselves through fashion, art, and other forms of decoration. Mankind is also driven by simple curiosity to explore the world.

This is the best and most inciteful documentary on humans I've ever seen. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to understand more about people's behaviors than they do. Best documentary I've ever seen.
