My Review:

“March of the Penguins” is already the second highest-grossing documentary feature, second only to “Fahrenheit 9/11.” And this movie is rated G – it’s a wonderful movie for the whole family! How refreshing! It was originally a french film, and the U.S. distributor added a new script with narration by Morgan Freeman. We never see any people, although we know they must be there because the shots are absolutely incredible. I don’t know how they got so close to those penguins to really capture their emotions. And it is emotional – it’s moving, touching, tragic and sweet. And it’s inspirational! These penguins are not actors – but they are some of the more amazing characters you’ll ever see. They’re full of heart, compassion – there are so many moments where they seem human. There are characters in the movie that we can each relate to. This movie is a real treat. Highly recommended!
