  • Anthropomorphism should be handled with care. When it reaches the Disney level, it becomes coloured by condescension -- which is the problem here.

  • Animals In Love is fatally lopsided and really only serves to fuel the skeptics' notion that the animal liberation argument is all heart and no head.

  • Just think, if Travis Bickle had taken Cybill Shepherd's character in Taxi Driver to see this, instead of some porn flick depicting humans in love, they might well have hit it off.

  • While a list of the animals portrayed is shown in the end credits it would have been nice to have a bit more insight into species and location while we're seeing them, particularly as the film lacks a strong narrative drive.

    Dec 1, 2008 | Rating: 3/5
  • The images and subject matter are mesmerising, yet as a whole, the film feels fragmented . . . the cinematography is extraordinary so it is disappointing that the film as a whole is not more satisfying

  • The documentary Les animaux amoureux (Animals in Love) might seem cute on paper but lacks the rigour of recent documentary hits such as La marche de l'empereur (March of the Penguins) and Earth.
