      This is a wonderful animal movie for both children and adults. I guess you could say it is a true story as nature photographers filmed it up in the artic (the animals are not trained acting animals - they are the real thing). Words were added to the picture to bring the story to life. Basically it follows the lives of two young animals: Nanu the polar bear cub and Seela the walrus pup. They

      both are very cute while they are youngsters and we slowly see them grow up into adults while learning from their mothers how to survive in the frozen wilderness at the top of the world.

      I liked the message in this film. Basically it shows through pictures and the narration how man is changing the world. The artic has less ice each winter (with the ice forming months behind schedule) and it shows how that affects the animals that live there. Without ice the polar bears have no hunting grounds. With no ice the walruses can’t get out of the water and warm up (swimming in the sea all of the time is too cold even for them - besides they need to rest). The problem of global warming is explained simply so even a child can understand it easily. I also liked that at the end of the film things ...

      were suggested on how to slow down the problem, like shutting off lights if you don’t need them, using florescent bulbs and riding the bus.

      The movie also has lots of action and danger. Seela being hunted by a large male polar bear while trapped on a cliff, Nanu facing starvation. The plot moves quickly and near the end I found myself misty-eyed. The movie is not exactly sad, but it’s touching. Nor is there

      any actual blood shown (the predators do go hunting), so it’s great for children.

      The scenery was also spectacular: snow blowing across the tundra, the bleak nothingness of mile upon mile of snow, and the dark blue sea. The polar bear cubs were very cute as well as the white fox. The picture also shows some of the other artic animals briefly, like the orca (killer whale), narwhales and some odd swimming bird.

      The movie is 86 minutes long.
