Interesting experiments and interpretations
9 October 2016 | by (WA, USA) – See all my reviews

To be honest, I'm more of recreational movies rather than pure documentaries, but this one really did widen my mind. If you do care about animal liberation or ever ponder about the fundamental differences between homo sapiens and our close primates, Ape Genius might be the perfect door for you.

Through the 8 intriguing experiments, you will have more food for your brain to think about classic questions, such as, Do animals have any sense of justice? Do they have cooperation? Do they have emotions like us? To your amazement, you will learn about Kanzi the chimp who can understand complex English sentences, the cooperation between bonobos and numeral facility of an ape in Japan.

All of them will make you question the foundation on which we lay our understanding about ourselves. The gap becomes so narrow that you can't but be bewildered about the similarities between us and them. After the film, I really feel more compassionate towards the animals I've always neglected and given no thoughts of.

Do watch it if you can. Surely a mind-opening documentary.
