Incredible beautifully filmed visual experience of an almost unbelievable discovery!

Um...stockup, they are documented at 30,000 years, though there is some question that they might be only 25,000 or so. They were discovered nearly 30 years ago, so 3 to 4 years is kind of a hilarious estimate! The Herzogian touches are sometimes quite silly, but the science is there and the images quite valid (check out Lascaux, at a documented 18,000 years, or Cougnac and Pech Merle at over

For better or worse, the movie does for Chauvet what Baudrillard complained an on-site replica did for Lascaux-render the real thing false. Full Review
