Winged Migration

from Film Forum, 06/19/03

Ever dreamed of flying? Winged Migration is the movie for you. Not even Superman offers such an exhilarating thrill as the soaring sequences in this awe-inspiring documentary. Producer Jacques Perrin and a crew of 450 took to the skies for several years in order to document bird migrations across all seven continents. The result has audiences spellbound.

Movieguide's critic calls it "a masterpiece of natural filmmaking. After the fiftieth time of asking yourself how in the world they captured that shot, you will get caught up in the grandeur and thoroughly enjoy the flow of this stunning display of God's wonder. It is a terrific choice for families who value beauty, education, and summer togetherness."

Anne Navarro (Catholic News Service) says, "Nature is the special effect here. To say the film is escapist fare is to trivialize the wonder and beauty of it—but one does get lost in it. Entertaining as well as educational for all in the family, Winged Migration also has a philosophical frame to it. Questions about man vs. nature, human beings' responsibility in caring for the Earth, and God's role in the cycle of life and death come to mind. [It] helps the viewer appreciate nature's awesome power and maybe even feel a little closer to God."
