Movie Review: March of the Penguins

Wednesday, December 14, 2005
I watched March of the Penguins last night. It was the most incredible movie about penguins I've ever seen.

The movie is a documentary about Emporer Penguins and their mating ritual. While there's a great deal of editorialization and personification of the penguins themselves, the movie excels because it's a) narrated by Morgan Freeman, and b) due to the amazing capture on film of an amazing animal. Watching the penguins make their journey inland over 70 miles, go for months without food, and hatch their young was awe-inspiring, to say the leasat. The difficulty is that at every stage of the journey there are penguins and chicks that don't make it - and we're reminded of that.

Final word on March of the Penguins: See it. Rent it. Watch it. It's worth it.
