Can we say "pretentious"?
10 August 2006 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

All I can say is this: This film may be advertised as being about climate change. It isn't!

Most laughable moment was the shot of walruses sitting around doing nothing when the voice over said "The walruses philosophically await the return of the ice."

Ahh, no they don't. They sit around and belch!

This film was sponsored by WWF. Prime funding for that little organisation comes from climate changer #1 Shell.

Boring, pointless and too many repeated shots.

Official selection for the 2006 Melbourne International Film Festival.

Shows what a sad state the film fest is in.

Avoid at all costs.
