Critic Reviews for Winged Migration
Jacques Perrin's spectacular documentary takes observation a step further as he literally seems to take flight with flocks of birds as they make their annual migration.
Filmed with exceptional care and remarkable photographic ingenuity, no other nature documentary is as personal and as close-up as this one to the peculiarities of birds.
Craftily edited and staged, but still works as an entertaining, and visually stunning documentary.
The Oscar-nominated "Winged Migration" is a virtuosi technical achievement in documentary filmmaking due to its astonishingly intimate photography of the migrations of numerous species of birds across the earth's northern and southern hemispheres.
Utilizing sky divers, ultralights, helicopters, planes, etc., the filmmakers litterally have you flying with the birds. It makes for a heady, enjoyable ride.
The point of this true-life adventure is not the dissemination of information but the instilling of a sense of awe in the viewer ...
The material seems shapeless... no question was raised that might have held me... And maybe Born Free was a documentary, too.
There's no better tribute to the beauty of flight than Jacques Perrin's lighter-than-air documentary wonder.
In the tradition of the also nearly wordless Atlantis and Microcosmos educational voiceover narration is superfluous: It's enough simply to see.
All in such extreme close-up that you think the birds will whack the camera with their wings at any moment.
Um filme para ser visto na telona, e não na tevê.
A superior wildlife film, featuring such breathtaking images of wild birds in flight that the audience is constantly wondering 'how in the world did they get that shot?'
While the film is astonishing in its scope and accomplishment, categorizing Winged Migration as a documentary may be misleading.
an amazing technical achievement, as the cameras get so close to the birds you would almost swear you could reach out and touch their feathers.
Audience Reviews for Winged Migration
This may be a 5, but it's been since the film's release that I've seen it, so I want to give it another view.More
The Scenes in this are unbeleiveable. I have seen Mallard Ducks for years but never noticed how flat they are when they fly. You fly with the birds, you will be in awwwww.More
