Storyline

A nameless baby male elephant was just getting used to life in the herd, when poachers kill his mother, so he runs and gets lost. He's found by a grouchy female, Groove, the sister of a matriarch, who walks off disgusted with life in her herd. Not exactly wholehearted, she still takes the orphan under her wing, 'till we find your herd', but fails to find his herd, or a new home with males -who find him disrespectful and mouthy- or her own herd, which nicknames the kid whispers since his trumpeting is so weak. meanwhile the fear for poachers and (that is, in the movie) lions drives them north over the great river, a long and dangerous journey...

Please re-rate this movie to PG
30 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hi There, I am the Grandmother of eleven beautiful Grandchildren. On Saturday, May 14th, 2005, My Grandchildren, their Mother's, and Myself sat down to watch "Whisper-An Elephants tale." This film is rated "G."We are all wondering if there might be some mistake in the rating of this movie. The children, their Mothers and Myself were very disturbed by the graphic detail of the human and animal behavior in this film. We were under the impression, according to the brief description of the movie on the back of the box, that we were going to watch something similar to Homeward bound. It even stated that. This movie was Not even close in comparison. Of course the many animals were wild instead of dogs and a cat. That would have been understandable, But Please this was a child's movie rated "G." There wasn't a warning of any kind of it's graphic nature. Anyway, a few minutes into this movie and you can see why we are concerned. A half hour further and it rose to disgust. We turned off the movie due to the terribly upset children. Their mother's and myself were in shock and did a double check on the back of the DVD box for the rating once again. My Daughter had the stronger stomach and watched a bit more to see just how bad it got. She was even disgusted at the graphic detail in the animal attacks. Just so you would know this, in case you didn't, we thought we would write to you and request that the rating be changed to "PG" so that other parents and children will be warned before hand and won't be left with those images in their heads like we have. We're not sure if this is the proper channel to follow to make this request or not, but if it isn't would you be so kind as to forward this to the one who can handle it for us. Thank You, so much, for your understanding.
