As pretty and light as a feather on the wind.

Jacques Perrin's spectacular documentary takes observation a step further as he literally seems to take flight with flocks of birds as they make their annual migration.

Filmed with exceptional care and remarkable photographic ingenuity, no other nature documentary is as personal and as close-up as this one to the peculiarities of birds.

Craftily edited and staged, but still works as an entertaining, and visually stunning documentary.

The Oscar-nominated "Winged Migration" is a virtuosi technical achievement in documentary filmmaking due to its astonishingly intimate photography of the migrations of numerous species of birds across the earth's northern and southern hemispheres.

Utilizing sky divers, ultralights, helicopters, planes, etc., the filmmakers litterally have you flying with the birds. It makes for a heady, enjoyable ride.

Winged Migration must be the most subversive G-rated film ever.

The material seems shapeless... no question was raised that might have held me... And maybe Born Free was a documentary, too.

There's no better tribute to the beauty of flight than Jacques Perrin's lighter-than-air documentary wonder.

Winged Migration soars, and lets us fly along for the ride.

In the tradition of the also nearly wordless Atlantis and Microcosmos… educational voiceover narration is superfluous: It's enough simply to see.

The movie is, in three words, beautiful beautiful beautiful.
