Watch them march to the very extremes of extremis, though, and it's easy to feel awe. Life must beget life, whatever the cost.
Some of the eggs and chicks freeze, and the parents' cries are painful to hear (probably more for us than for them).
French director Luc Jacquet and a team of incredibly brave (and heavily bundled) documentary filmmakers captured this complicated mating ritual with strikingly crisp photography that's both grand and intimate.
This astonishing film, shot in the Antarctic, captures sights never seen before.
Birth, death, romance, danger: All play a role in Jacquet's homage to a remarkably endearing creature.
Morgan Freeman's slick voice-over compounds a slightly plodding structure, but the dedication of the penguins -- and the cameramen -- assure your wonderment.
A touch David-Attenborough-TV-special in places, but beautifully filmed and dripping with drama, joy and heartbreak.
The avian protagonists' comical ungainliness on land and deadpan manner make for adorable viewing, while the austere, glacial landscape is consistently breathtaking.
The love story may be tenuous, but the penguins are undeniably sweet and silly, sliding on their bellies, and the impossibly cute chicks offer up plenty of slapstick.
With such incredible subject matter, March Of The Penguins cannot help but hold the attention. It's impossible not to warm to the penguins.
It set the bar high for future documentaries.
plays like a high-end Discovery Channel special, but it's compelling and beautiful just the same, exuding a love for its subject matter that's infectious
Visually stunning, inconceivably adorable ... and even educational.
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.
March of the penguins is about a real life group of penguins as they go on their mission to get back their mating ground. On their annual journey that invokes just about every major life experience that u can have in the life of a penguin.
It really shows what it is like to a penguin.
A very well crafted documentary, Marc Of The Penguins was always a film that I never watched because I never had the change, but I took a shot, and was surprised. The film is very interesting ans beautifully filmed, narrated as we see these penguins during their mating season. These emperor penguins march 70 miles to a breeding ground to find a mate and conceive a chick. The entire journey is dangerous as we see the dangers of the cold and of the many predators trying to hunt down a few penguins. March Of The penguins is narrated by Morgan Freeman and is directed by Luc Jacques, and we get a glimpse of this astounding journey that penguins have undertaken for centuries. A very well made documentary, but I find it misleading to say that this is the greatest documentary film ever made. I think it's a film worth checking out, yes, but I seen much more intriguing documentaries. A good film, but the critics kinda killed it. Astounding and masterpiece are not words that I would use to describe this documentary. Heartwarming, heartbreaking, interesting, well made and good are the words to use. Not superb, excellent or unforgettable. March Of The Penguins is a good documentary that showcases a very interesting subject, and is a documentary that the whole family could enjoy. But me, I've better documentaries such as Man On Wire, now thats a masterful documentary, this is good, not excellent, just good.
