Movie Info

Emperor penguins overcome daunting obstacles in order to return to their breeding grounds for mating season. This tells the story of one year in the life of a flock -- focusing on one couple in particular -- as they trek across the Antarctic on an annual journey that invokes just about every major life experience: from birth to death, from dating to mating, from comedy to tragedy, and from love to fighting for survival.

    Compelling narration from Freeman and stunning storytelling. Score also did the work for the film. It's a lovely documentary of the lives of penguins.

    Gorgeous story of the march of the emperor penguins, truly one of the most unique species in the animal kingdom. The film uncomfortably stradles the border of attributing human qualities to their subjects but the footage is breathtaking.

    March of the Penguins a truly remarkable film. It is enchantingly moving and you must have a stone cold black heart to not enjoy this spectacle. Absolutely incredible, greatly emotional and a sincerely unfortuante true story turned into entertainment by cinematic geniuses.

    A documentary that has everything for everyone, it's superbly shot, the way it tells a "story" is very well explored with a sweet and bittersweet tone that makes wonders for this type of documentary.
