Trivia

Gilles de Maistre called on South African zoologist Kevin Richardson, who has been interacting with lions for over twenty years. The first devoted the second documentary entitled The Man who whispered in the ears of lions(L'Homme qui murmure à l'oreille des lions.). Sometimes Richardson took the place of the director to be able to film the lion as closely as possible in potentially dangerous scenes. See more »

Lot of feelings and no regret
31 December 2018 | by viktuaySee all my reviews

Filming has been spread over 3 years so, lion and childrens grew in parallel. Characters psychology is well built. Despite story is fictional, it's hard to feel detached from animal fate and family issues. Action goes crescendo with suspense in last chapter.
