Inventive showcase of natural wonders
10 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Some fantastic talents working on this film: definitely worth checking out. It features one segment for a National Park in each province or territory, each by a different director and musical team accompanying, usually composing and recording live on location.

Scott Smith's BC segment is outstanding, probably contains the best image: a gorgeous scarlet sunset over a tranquil, pristine tree-lined bay is captured from a boat - looks like a signature shot for the entire film - and then a whale surfaces just in front of the boat. Magical.

Peter Lynch's AB segment is ambitious and arguably the best of the bunch: stylized, distinctive and interesting historical perspective on the park in relation to the Blackfoot nation, hordes of tourists, buffalo extinction, all rendered with artistry. Gorgeously shot, kinetic, rhythmic (great editing): really enjoyed this one.

Zacharius Kunuk's work is always interesting, so was a pleasure to see his Nunavut segment. I enjoyed all of the northern segments: Louise Archambault's Yukon film inventively shows vast arctic landscapes, particularly mountains and glaciers, with memorable panoramic aerial shots. And the NWT segment was another standout - great shots (and sounds) of white water rafting, grizzly bears and thunderous waterfalls. As much as any other segment, it made me want to visit the place, and made me feel like I was there. Plus, it featured music by Besnard Lakes: yes, please!
