Like a lot of people in the Netherlands, I was not aware that we had such a great nature reservation like this in our country. The footage shown was very beautiful (near BBC standards) but I was disappointed by the narration. It lacked a good story; at the beginning of the movie it jumped from one species to the next without a nice, spoken transition. It felt like we were left hanging without a proper end to the story. At times the narration seemed aimed at children, sounding really educational (which is good in a way) and at others it seemed almost like they were telling a tale. In conclusion, I'd recommend this movie, but I'd like to hear a different narration next time (for the television broadcast there will be by the way) with better writing. Perhaps they should make an educational version for kids as well. But, don't let the (in my opinion) poor narration hold you back, because this movie deserves to be watched.
