  • The result is schizophrenic, an uplifting film that's truly depressing, a movie about cruelty that tries to be fluffy. show more

  • Annaud is a filmmaker who often works with a bare minimum of dialogue. Yet his storytelling is so strong and emotional that words are barely necessary. show more

  • There's something simple yet miraculous about watching these beautiful animals interact with the wild and each other, even if their actions are being manipulated for the sake of drama. Annaud has taken his film's message to heart: He knows when to get out of nature's way. show more
