Movie Info

In Canada, David Suzuki is pretty much an icon: a household name synonymous with nature and science, best known as the host of the long-running CBC TV show "The Nature of Things" and as a pioneering and passionate environmentalist. Although he is a tad less well known here south of the border, he may be the most inspiring, charming, eloquent, compelling voice for environmental sanity in the world today. At the age of 75, he shows no signs of slowing down. But what drove him to become the phenomenon he is? This engrossing documentary guides us through his life and reveals the key events and people that shaped him. The occasion for the film is Suzuki's return to the University of British Columbia to deliver his legacy lecture to a sold-out audience. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

Much of "Force of Nature" feels familiar and unnecessarily predigested.

April 19, 2012 | Rating: 2/4

Dr. Suzuki's upbeat tone is the spoonful of sugar that makes the bitter medicine go down.

December 1, 2011 | Rating: 3/5

Engaging doc mixes passionate environmental arguments with a warm biographical portrait.

December 1, 2011 | Full Review…

Suzuki's unimpeachable cred as a longtime climate-change evangelist and swooning regard for the natural world do give the conversation a convincing, if depressing, urgency, but what sets Force of Nature apart is the sweeping diversity of his life.

November 29, 2011 | Full Review…

[A] lavish, lovely and rather earnestly dull tribute of a movie.

October 1, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Although Suzuki's message that humans have exhausted the resources of the biosphere and need to rethink their relationship with the natural world may be a familiar one, it bears repeating.

Audience Reviews for Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie


A beautiful doc on the life of Canada's most illustrious environmentalist. The humanity of Suzuki emerges from visits to key places from key moments if his life. Missing however is the tale of Suzuki's marital difficulties possibly to secure his participation. The omission is a cloud over an otherwise worthwhile effort.
