A film that all nature lovers will enjoy!
17 August 2008 | by Len9876See all my reviews

A beaver couple live by their dam, as the seasons go by. They have babies, gather food, and maintain their dam, play and swim--and, of course, defend their territory against predators and intruders. After one of their young gets lost in the forest, the mother and father beaver search frantically for him, while he is rescued by an unlikely ally. The film features real animals--and uses new techniques to provide stunning and original never-before-seen images.

The film tells a touching and suspenseful, wildlife fiction story that will captivate the entire family. It is a film for all nature-loving adults and children.

Everyone should enjoy the beautiful photography, as well as the solid storyline. It is a French/Canadian film, being distributed in the U.S.

The film is aptly directed by Philippe Calderon, and splendid writing is provided by Marthe Pelletier and Hassina Belkacem. An Alliance Viva film, it stars Benoit Briere. It is a very delightful film, with a running time of 1 hour and 20 minutes. Highly recommended, I rank the film a 9 out of 10.
