Arctic Tale Reviews
From the obvious cinematography to the excellent soundtrack. I mean The Shins are on it, so what else could you ask for? The opening theme song was just perfect too.
But at the heart are two survival stories. It makes you think twice about the animal kingdom and how much we have in common with them. This is pure survival at it's best and worst. Nothing is choreographed, it's all real.
I also liked the narration, it is more of a guide and stands to illuminate events as they happen. There are many scenes I will never forget. One that stands out to me is when it is time for Nanu to go off on her own to fend for herself and what the mother must do to make this happen. Heartbreaking, I tell ya. Sometimes the only solution could be the toughest that one could ever face. Wow, so this is the true meaning of strength and the will to survive when all odds are against you.
It's funny how when you get to know these animals and see how they live, that they are just like any other character in any other movie. You get to know and feel empathy for them.
