A sure cure for insomnia
14 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

I had high hopes going in to this film. I love nature documentaries and I love birds. This seemed like a great fit for me.

Unfortunately this film does not deliver in the information department or the entertainment department. Some narration would go a long way in improving this movie. There are so many good wildlife films out there today. There is no reason to waste your time on this film. There is no discernible story, no discernible message.

Go rent "Winged Migration" or any David Attenborough film to quench your thirst for wildlife. I would like to say more about this film, but it is really just 2 hours of footage of birds fling into and out of a small hole in the side of a church.
