The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos Photos

Movie Info

This lyrical documentary uses high-definition photography, narration by French actress Zabou Breitman and an elaborate score to illuminate the life cycle of one of the world's most awe-inspiring but least-understood creatures -- the flamingo. The titular mysteries explored in the film include the process through which flamingos, born black and white, attain their highly recognizable pink shade. The story of these majestic birds unfolds among the striking landscapes of Tanzania.

Critic Reviews for The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (5)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It shows a painterly eye in frame after exquisitely judged frame, not afraid of economy and balance.

  • With endless widescreen panoramas of birds in flight, Disney's latest nature doc looks like an expensive British Airways advert.

Audience Reviews for The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos

  • Oct 14, 2012
    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.
