So fur, so good.
8 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this documentary Merrilees Parker goes on a personal journey to find out the "truth" behind how animals are killed for their fur. The programme starts off with Merrilees showing her collection of fur clothes (from what I remember she owns 3 or 4 pieces). She meets various people in the fur trade including the people who run the fur farms and kill the animals. She also meets an animal rights supporter who shows her violent videos of animals being brutally killed for fur; no surprise that these change her opinion. As she visits various fur farms and "hunting grounds" she learns the animals are are largely treated fairly. She also visits some fashion houses/fashion designers and learns there is not only a demand for fur garments but they can look beautiful. The documentary ends with her cutting-up her fur clothes. At the end of day very few people will make a documentary of this nature and say they love fur and will wear more of it; so no surprises there.

The documentary is a personal journey. There has been a number of similar-style documentaries being produced for Channel 4 recently, "Dawn Porter" has a similar format for example. The programme is interesting and gives an insight into the fur trade. If someone has an opinion of fur, for or against this will not change their mind either way. It is worth watching. Merrilees Parker is a good presenter and draws you in to her feelings. The production is also spot-on and clearly a fair amount of money has been spent making it. Recommended.
