Everything is not bad in this fakumentary. The murder inquiry for instance. It shows how scientists followed trails and changed their mind when they got new elements. This kind of plot can make the kids think about how science works. Well it could, if for the rest it wasn't so stupid as quite all prehistoric movies are : BBC telling how marriage was millenaries ago (the young beautiful 2000's girl is exchanged with a goat) with a few soft-erotic images (the bride, topless, having some kind of a massage by other beautiful girls of the tribe) will stay one of the joys of my life. So what do we got ? Three different stories about a man who actually lived, built from the very rich elements we have (he has nice shoes, he had an arrow in the back, he used medicine tattoos, he knew how to make fire, etc.), but all these stories as well as the "mariage" scenes, are just clichés : violent ages, rough manners, etc. The movie talks about a period we know nothing about, and lets think we know quite a lot. I actually happen to find this fiction documentary quite lame.
