Critic Reviews for Koko, le gorille qui parle (Koko, a Talking Gorilla)
Mr. Schroeder has assembled this funny, provocative documentary with gratifying intelligence and care.
It confronts the viewer with several questions that cannot be easily answered, providing considerable food for thought.
Sprinkled comments provide enough intellectual provocation to begin debate, but the main course is Koko's wide-ranging behavior.
Audience Reviews for Koko, le gorille qui parle (Koko, a Talking Gorilla)
This is a truly fascinating and incredible study. Koko is a truly amazing creature. I strongly recommend "A Conversation with Koko" as well if you get the chance.
An interesting documentary following the education of a gorilla who can communicate via simple sign language. The film raises questions on the ethical treatment of animals, as well as teaching us how smart apes really are. At times enfuriating, but also very sweet. The documentary doesn't judge those doing the experiment, or give us answers. It's all on us. Fascinating if a little short and repetitive in places.
I remember the book Koko's Kitten. Who knew a really good documentary about Koko existed? It is fascinating to watch the gorilla get down with sign language.
