Filming was normal until the lion was a year and a half old. There, the team has folded in cages because lions go through 2 years a period that can be likened to adolescence. See more »
Several times during the movie, there is a close-up of the white lion who seems to be purring. Lions do not purr. They can roar, which smaller cats cannot.
The largest cat that can both "meow" and purr is the cougar, or panther. Lions cannot purr. See more »
It's such a pity this film isn't more popular! The pace of the narrative is great. It is engaging from the first minute. It's also evident to see how long they've taken to film it, as the boys grow along with the lion - about three years. While it focuses on the relationship between Mia and this wonderful lion, it also deals with family ties, connection with nature and the hard way in which these animal farms have to survive. Super recommended!
