Audience Reviews for The Zookeeper
My wife said this was the most horrible movie she'd ever seen...not in quality, but in how difficult and painful it was to watch the horrors contained within. I don't necessarily agree with that completely, but it was definitely a downer. It seemed to me that the whole goal of the movie was to depress the audience. If that's true, mission accomplished. I think the point of the movie is that war is horrible. I already knew that, but it was still pretty decent. And horrible. The one thing that disappointed me was that the leader of the group of thugs that kept visiting the zoo never ate a bullet. Sigh.
Beautifully told picture of the horrors of war through the eyes of a zookeeper who holds onto what he knows in the worst of circumstances
Aside from a scene whose tragic end is telegraphed for several tortuous minutes, "The Zookeeper" is well directed, poignant and, in the end, even hopeful. Also one of the better-kept secrets of Sam Neill's career.
