Beautiful documentary
15 December 2009 | by etm1935See all my reviews

I already knew a great deal about Knut and his foster-mother, Thomas Doerflein, following them at the Berlin Zoo through international media coverage, so I was interested in this movie when it was released in Europe, bought it in German/European format, and viewed it with delight on my computer. When it became available in a format for Americans with English narration and subtitles, I was elated. Makes a lot of difference to be able to view it on the big TV (smile).

If you have spent a great deal of time at youtube viewing Knut and Thomas, or if you love Christian the Lion and spent time viewing the classic videos of Knut and Thomas, and Christian and his two young fellas, smiling and feeling good about the world, this is another super video to own. It certainly is a great movie for children, for the entire family. Don't hesitate to buy it as a permanent component of your media library (I hope you also own Christian!).
