What an astonishingly beautiful film!
23 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is without doubt the saddest film I have ever seen in my life. I cried my eyes out like there was no tomorrow! I watched it on the television one evening - sort of half-watching to begin with, thinking it was going to be a typical nature documentary, but as the story unfolded it was anything but typical. I found myself gradually being drawn into the characters as the film progressed (and yes these chimpanzees are characters as much as any humans are). However, nothing could have prepared me for the ending. I would recommend this film to absolutely anyone, but in particular to those who think that animals have any less heart than humans.
