Give Charles Dance an Emmy for that!!
14 February 2020 | by nikostsoupSee all my reviews

Such an amazing documentary with epic cinematography creating such beautiful tension and making you sympathise with some beautiful animals in a cruel world. The greatest thing though that makes this epic is the narrating of this amazing man. Charles Dance. Such a smooth, captivating voice. I am in love with this man and he most definately deserves an Emmy for his narrating talent.
