Great doc
23 October 2006 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

A great companion piece to March of the Penguins, which is basically a making of doc.

However, you get the human perspective of the events from the Oscar-winning doc, such as the first arrival of the penguins.

Some of the lines are groan-inducing ("We expected them to be comic, but they are quite regal"), but you do get the excitement of being among the birds who have no fear of humans (since they never learned it.)

This documentary is included in the DVD of March of the Penguins, and matches up quite well to its more popular cousin.
