A fascinating bird's eye view into the lives of flamingo's
Crimson Wing is a documentary based on the lives of some flamingo chicks throughout their birth to young adulthood Filmed mainly around Lake Natron in Northern Tanzania.
Finely narrated by Zabou Breiman, with some fantastic wildlife photography and a really moving music score this film gets inside the adventures experienced over the period of a year showing seasonal changes births, deaths, trials and tribulations of the young birds and their weird and wonderful habitats especially interesting are the strange "salt islands" that the flamingo's use for nesting and rearing their young.
Many of the audience were engrossed by this film and many of the children especially seemed to "adopt" and be entranced by the story and the chicks and were genuinely concerned for the birds well-being.
A fascinating bird's eye view into the lives of flamingo's if you didn't like or know much about these birds before then you'll grow to be fascinated by them from watching this well crafted documentary, superb, high-quality photography, beautiful landscapes and a stirring musical score.
Recommended for lovers of nature documentaries everywhere.
