Your eyes will open wide
This movie is a must see for everybody who loves the nature. It was never boring. Sven Schelker delivered an Oscar worthy performance. He put his emotional feelings always at the right time. I am glad that the life of Bruno Manser has been finally filmed. It was for me and my wife a great experience. All facts are based on true stories. Wonderful pictures from the jungle in Borneo but also destroyed landscapes. Now I know what he tried to get for our planet. I hope he will be an idol for everyone of us in our heart. God bless him for all he did to help the Penan people to keep their rights. At the end I had nearly tears in my eyes. Don't miss it. 10/10.
