"but it really depends on the level of interest you have in elephants. Even though the photography is good; my interest in elephant's seem to have peak with this film. After a second viewing I was a little bored. I think a better balance Imax film is Africa: The Serengeti which has some spectacular photography and moves at a faster pace. This film conentrates on elephants and if you have a big interest in this subject you should be happy. There are some nice shots and one sequence were they use time lapse photography of a thunder storm was a highlight. But that sequence lasted for just 30 seconds. To be fair my interest in elephants is limited. My interest in Imax films is high. For me this film is a good rental but not one to buy."
This DVD is as big as the elephants in it !!!!!

"The documentary isn't the only great thing on this DVD... you should see the "Making off"... Great images (I don't think someone will ever get on film an elephant charging as the one on this documentary - I saw this film in a theatre in Cape Town and I'm still holding my breath). The story is Ok...
If you love elephants or Africa... this is a must have !!!!!"

"This wonderful documentary follows a small herd of elephants through a dry season. The series is narrated in first-person "by" an elephant (Avery Brooks)
The blu-ray quality is first rate with crystal clear images. Easily some of the best blues and greens I have seen on DVD. There are some great shots, including footage of a matriarch charging the camera. There were also several sad scenes in which the herd attempted to literally prop up a dead or dying elephant, showing the strength of emotional bonds between elephants.
My only complaint is that the documentary is pretty short (40 minutes), especially for the price. I would recommend renting it, unless you are a true elephant fanatic."
