  • They are unhurt, but the slow-motion footage is very funny

      You always hear people discussing cinematography in various films and movies, but in the movie I finally saw last night, ‘Earth,’ the cinematography is magnificent and clearly on a different level than most documentaries I have seen. The movie is made up of several ‘stories’ of animals in their natural habitat, and these stories are humorous, heart-warming and sad as well. Several people contributed to the spectacular footage, and the narration by James Earl Jones brings the stories and film to life.

      The main stories in

      this film are of three animal families-polar bears, elephants and humpback whales, and there are several secondary stories as well. The story of the polar bears is heartwarming, as the cubs take their first steps on the ice and slide around like babies will do. But this story is also sad, because their father starves to death due to the shrinking of the ice in the north and the food supply shrinking. This story reminds the viewer of the fragility of our earth and how ...

      • the animals are suffering.

        The second story is about a herd of elephants searching for water during the dry season in the savannah, and although even the little ones make it finally, we are also made aware of the dangerous fragility of the world’s water supplies.

        The third main story is about a mother and baby humpback whales that travelled 4000 miles to the South Pole to get food, and they make it as well, but just barely, and the world’s oceans being ruined is also

        the story.

        There are other stories throughout the film, and my scene was when the baby ducklings were learning to fly, but they leap from a tree and end up falling on their little faces on the ground. They are unhurt, but the slow-motion footage is very funny. The film footage that blew me away was the very close shots of a great white shark feeding in the ocean-very spectacular!

        ‘Earth’ is the best nature documentary I have ever seen. It teaches valuable lessons as well as entertaining.
