I saw this film as an IMAX and it was breathtaking.
23 May 2004 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

This short film has a fabulous soundtrack and amazing shots of natural wonders, nature, and people. The film is shot in countries all over the world from Borneo to Alaska, with interviews with native peoples, and a narration by Redford (although he talks less than the others). The shots of natural wonders, and natives doing their thing (hunting, cooking, dancing) are interspersed with fast-action scenes of cars zooming on throughways and people scurrying, which provide a stark contrast between living in harmony with nature and being in a rat-race. All of this is enhanced by the scope of the IMAX screen and surround-sound system. However, the emphasis on primitive living is a little too much to be taken seriously by those of us with indoor plumbing!
