A must-see documentary!
23 January 2020 | by dalcinovSee all my reviews

This movie is a must-see for every human being, especially for those who love nature. It contains very informative material and it is highly inspiring. It is modest in every sense and quite balanced in every respect. There are many breathtaking moments of pictures of our nature. The movie reflects life itself.
