Movie Reviews

Penguins are not a new interest of filmgoers
Richard R. Merrell | RI | 03/22/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hayley Mills' character is the impetus for John Hurt's character to go to the Antarctic, but she has little screen time compared to the wonderful creatures that are the centerpiece of this film. Beautiful photography (Arne Sucksdorff, Dir. of Photography)highlights Mr. Hurt's struggles with nature. While a bit dated in the bits in London, Nature is never dated and the increasing empathy between the scientist and his subjects is touching and heart-warming. Some of the scenes are not for small children or even some large ones, but the film is a treasure.-+"
