The Synopsis for March of the Penguins (2005) 720p

At the end of each Antarctic summer, the emperor penguins of the South Pole journey to their traditional breeding grounds in a fascinating mating ritual that is captured in this documentary by intrepid filmmaker Luc Jacquet. The journey across frozen tundra proves to be the simplest part of the ritual, as after the egg is hatched, the female must delicately transfer it to the male and make her way back to the distant sea to nourish herself and bring back food to her newborn chick.

The Reviews for March of the Penguins (2005) 720p


Heartwarming/HeartbreakingReviewed byShawn WatsonVote: 7/10

And oh so cute! Emporer Penguins achieve many miracles every year in their quest for reproduction. How exactly they know how to do all this is incredible.

First they all leap out of the ocean and begin to march, single file, for over 70 miles, to their preferred breeding ground. They look really cute as they do this.

Then, when they are at their breeding ground, they look for a partner. There are loads more boys than girls, so the competition is stiff. But, eventually, they find a partner and the magic happens. Do penguins fall in love? It seems they do and they all have strange rituals of hugging and talking gibberish. I have no doubts that they are actually talking to each other.

As winter comes, they all huddle together in a group. Eggs are laid and passed onto the male as the female go off to search for food. Some eggs are misplaced and the unhatched baby penguin dies. It's really sad.

As the girls are away, the boys have to suffer intense blizzards and snow storms. Some of the older ones die, or as Morgan Freeman says, simply go to sleep. A close-up of a penguin closing his eyes for the final time is truly a deeply affecting moment. Since this is the part where it's the males fighting for themselves, this is probably the reason there are less of them.

When the girls return, the eggs hatch and adorable little babies poke their heads out and see the world for the first time. But since they are so small, they need to stay sheltered. The males are still sheltering and when the female wants it back they have to move very quickly since the fragile little penguin cannot be out of warmth for more than a few moments.

Some die. And a scene where a mother pokes at her dead chick is utterly heartbreaking. However, the majority survives. As they have done for thousands of years. And as summer arrives they grown-ups depart, leaving the babies on their own. And when one of the plucks up enough courage to dive in the ocean, the rest follow. And soon, they'll be back to take part in the same ritual, the same survival quest.

It's a purity and innocence that humans have long, long, LONG lost. Every creature on earth exists simply to multiply and be the dominant species. But surely Emperor Penguins do it in the toughest of conditions. Nature may be cruel, but it's pure. You might even end up a little jealous and insist on living as a hermit or wildman in a vain attempt at getting back to nature. But, inevitable, you'll probably miss your playstation and porn too much.

Morgan Freeman's narration is brilliant. But since he has the second coolest voice in the world (after Lance Henrikson) I could probably listen to him for hours even if he was just reading the dictionary. The score by Alex Wurman is also great and when coupled with the beautiful cinematography it makes for huge escapism. It reminds me a lot of the Landscape Channel, which I used to watch as a kid.

I totally recommend the film. And it's cool that for once a family film can be a documentary and NOT some total crap with Eddie Murphy or Steve Martin selling themselves out.

I Just Loved ItReviewed byBBrinVote: 9/10

There's really nothing not to like about this movie. It is interesting being shown how the penguins behave and simultaneously told what they are thinking. Obviously the imagery is rather objective but the subjective "story" told makes this a movie rather than an Animal Planet TV show. The Story is amazing. Fact is truly stranger than fiction. The characters are well developed; the hero more beautifully photogenic than Brad Pitt and A. Jolie combined; the plot is compelling; and though the ending can never be in doubt its story is both riveting and the resolution impactful. I took my date and my 7 year old and we all loved it.

Fine Documentary about an Animal Family Doesn't Flinch at LifeReviewed byRandomTask-APVote: 8/10

Few animals and fewer people ever venture to the foreboding conditions of Antarctica, but one pair of determined documentary makers made the journey. Director ? cinematographer, Laurent Chalet and co-cinematographer Jér?me Maison braved wild winds and far-below-freezing temperatures to film the annual mating ritual of an even heartier group: penguins. The result is a brief, but complete, look into the world of one of the strangest and most determined creatures to have evolved in nature.

The trailer gives away anything that might be considered plot. After all, it is a documentary about the very direct need to survive. The story is really in the viewing. It is the visuals of the icy expanse and watching the huge the number of penguins in their parade. Once at their destination, their behavior is moving and intricately social. They provide the amusing antics everyone associates with the flightless birds: they slide around on their bellies and proceed upright in their dignified waddle. However, their survival is maintained as a flock as they huddle for warmth, share food, share responsibilities and police one another's occasionally antisocial tendencies.

Director Chalet does not flinch away at the moments when misfortune does strike. There are a couple of villains along the way, but they take their place center stage one at a time. A seal and a seagull come forward to take their meals from the flock. Even one of the group's own attempts a kidnapping. Most of the danger comes from the starkly beautiful landscape. Members, young, old and the unborn, fall to the harsh conditions. There are shots of the lost and the frozen that might bring tears or sadness from a younger movie-goer, but these incidents do not overcome the overall positive themes of love and successful survival.

It is odd that birds that act like fish can do so much to remind us of cartoon versions of ourselves. Although that anthropomorphized perspective is overstated in "March of the Penguins", it offers a glimpse of a rarely viewed part of world with crisp and beautiful photography and shares a genuine sense of wonder with us.
