Great movie!
22 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in Paris when it first came out. I loved it. The filming is uncanny and amazing.

I especially liked the filming of the beluga whales. They were ghostly, other-worldly. Although I was aware of many of the animals in the Arctic, I had no idea that there was such diversity and therefore so much to lose due to a warmer planet.

While this movie may or may not show the impacts of global warming in the Arctic, it shows what we stand to lose in the Arctic due to global warming.

I recommend this movie to anyone who might be even slightly interested in the Arctic and wildlife.
