A miracle of a film, March of the Penguins is one of the year's joys. This extraordinary glimpse into the life of the emperor penguins is far more than a story of survival: it is a unique love story of immense proportions.

To human observers, the ways in which animal behavior variously resembles or contrasts with human behavior is an inexhaustible source of fascination.

This is a beautifully shot film that takes you on an emotional roller-coaster of a ride, combining moments of comedy as the chicks attempt to walk for the first time with tragedy as predators swoop for the kill.

Secondly, it's been horribly sanitised, as if all the good bits have been removed for a pre-watershed TV screening. We do, in fact, get to see penguins doing it, but the narration neglects to mention it, lest children in the audience start asking

We know a documentary about penguins will be entertaining simply because they're so silly ... [but this] is not, actually, that exceptional.

[A] dream visit to the zoo. You aren't actually there, but you couldn't see more than this movie shows you if you were.

The glacially beautiful new documentary March Of The Penguins confirms that no computer-animated or hand-drawn penguin could ever match the curious majesty of the genuine article.
