I'm a grown man and I wept when I watched the colony of meerkats fall back to comfort a wounded, dying "Bold One" who had confronted a jackal the previous night. I only hope I am treated with such compassion when my hour is at hand.
This movie isn't didactic or preachy. The documentary footage speaks for itself. The film is a revelation about the complexity of social structure among the creatures we share this planet with. Like "March of the Penguins", "Why Dogs Smile" illustrates how much we have in common with wildlife and how much we have yet to learn.
If you want to watch a film with your family, I can't think of anything more uplifting than "Why Dogs Smile."
