AKA: March of the Penguins
Directed by: Luc Jacquet
Narrator: Morgan Freeman
Synopsis: The life cycle of the Emperor penguin.
The synopsis may not make this flick sound all that appealing, but I assure you, it is an emotional rollercoaster. It is beautiful, sad, hopeful and occasionally stressful. Bring a box of tissues and don't say I didn't warn ya.
Freeman's evocative narration coupled with truly amazing filming of almost unbelievable vistas makes for a near-perfect documentary. Desolation, despair, hope, happiness... and it all comes across perfectly from our main characters who rarely utter a sound.
