"Life to me seems an unending resource"
26 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

'Terra' is both beautiful and haunting. It begins with the image of colobus monkeys enjoying their rainforest home. This is soon contrasted with some confused, displaced ones in a tea field.

The first half of the film is largely about our animal neighbours and distant relatives. The second half takes more aim at humans, identifying ways we impact upon our environment and harm it.

The goal of the movie is clear – to make you think about your own ethics, behaviour and sometimes hypocrisy. It certainly ticks this box and contrasts some amazing scenery and spectacular wildlife shots with ones of suffering. You are made to feel a lot of empathy for all of the animals included.

The narration works, the soundtrack is complimentary rather than intrusive, and you will probably learn something. My only minor gripes are that it perhaps gets a little too preachy, and could have highlighted some exploited but often ignored species (eg pangolins).

Altogether, if you enjoy nature, wildlife and/or movies which makes you think, this is certainly worth 97 minutes of your time.
