I just ate cheese, er I mean. Umm. yeah. So this seems like a useless waste of time, that is watching this film. Wouldn't any animal develop what ways we might teach them to communicate if we were to steal them/it at birth?

The chimp-human connection is frequently subject to human arrogance, sometimes cloaked in love, other times defined by science, and often supported by stupidity. Project Nim has it all. It makes awful reality, but a great movie! This is definitely my favorite movie of the year... ummm, decade.... ahhh, how about so far this century? See it.

A 40 year old story that really comes across as silly by today's standards. Very poor directing. This movie looks like a cut-and-paste job, really. There was nothing to be learned, nothing that sheds a new light on today's mistreatment of animals, for example. Silly staff sexual inter-relationships get into this story and make the whole thing cheap and stupid.
