This one's a corker: the cinematography is exquisite; it's admirably devoid of any overt anthropomorphism; the narration, while a little too mythical in context, is informative.
The imagery is great, and the colors are vibrant on the high definition television, but the scope of the film is a bit lacking.
From Disneynature comes this well-intentioned yet hopelessly underwhelming documentary...
The G-rated film (despite its content shortcomings) works well as an educational vehicle for younger viewers.
The documentary rarely flinches, showing exactly how outside forces slip in and feast on the weaker flamingos. It's ghastly, but hey, that's nature.
The script is more mystical than factual - the subtitle is Mystery Of The Flamingos - which can be cloying to those of us raised on Attenborough. But this is still a breathtakingly beautiful reflection on the fragile nature of life.
The Crimson Wing is a Disney nature film. Be aware of this and all that goes with it and you might yet discover the ennobling documentary hidden beneath the wretched excess.
If the narration is sometimes laid on a little thick, there remains something fascinating about these curious, balletic creatures.
This fascinating film shows the vast flocks of pink flamingos that breed on the isolated shores of Lake Natron in northern Tanzania.
This elegant doc does for flamingos what March Of The Penguins did for their Antarctic counterparts.
Much of it seems suitable only for adults or sophisticated children who have been taught about survival of the fittest, but the narration becomes childishly anthropomorphic.
While it's great to look at, the over-cooked narration (the birds don't die, their life force returns to the lake) plus a TV-doc vibe makes it somewhat less watchable than that famous penguin movie.
It was interesting, but like some other Disney nature films, I thought it was under-narrated. Also it's super sad! I know these things happen in nature, but it's like torture watching a little baby chick struggling to survive for 10 minutes straight.
