"You see it, only once you know it." - Johan Cruijff Wild Amsterdam is a wildlife feature film with a difference - it explores one of Europe's most vibrant and dynamic cities through the eyes of its wilder inhabitants.
A very surprising and breathtaking film, must see!
Even I, born & raised in the Netherlands, was extremely surprised by the spectacular views of nature this movie had to offer. Little did I know that my home-country housed wild horses, this many different types of birds and (maybe a little too much) creepy crawlers. During the story we follow all kinds of animals, plants and weather conditions during the four seasons. The viewer experiences the bloom of summer, the food frenzy of fall, the cold winter and the hope spring brings.
The narrators voice sometimes gave the movie a childish feel, but luckily the cinematography made up for this little ,sometimes annoying, touch. Because of the lack of plot (it is a nature film), the imagery is a very important factor. Images this breathtaking have become rare in cinema nowadays. Therefore it was very refreshing to see that these Dutch filmmakers understood the importance of cinematography.
If you are an outdoors person, somebody who loves nature in general or a sucker for sublime cinematography, you should definitely watch this movie. The first movie about Dutch nature ever made!
