Movie Reviews

Listening to the whales
B. Farrell | Santa Cruz | 05/25/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The whales are here to warn us to change our ways or lose our planet home.
Elders have gathered to remind us of our real commitment to Mother Earth
Lennon's music is hauntingly beautiful throughout the DVD and adds to the emotional complexity of the subject. The whale song drives deep into our soul consciousness and made this viewer rekindle an intimate remembrance with these ancient "gatekeepers.""
Excellent film!!! Highly Recommended!!!

"Although in limited theaterical release, I actually had the opportunity to see this visually stunning film in the theater; and what a wonderful experience that was! If you find it playing near you, you should definitely make an effort to go see it that way as well as buy the DVD, as I did.

This is a wonderful film that not only has beautiful photography of whales, dophins & the natural world...it also takes us on a journey thru the past & present lives of the different aboriginal tribes around the world, specifically the Mirning tribe (whale dreaming tribe) of Australia.

Representatives from different tribes from around the world with different cultures & beliefs came together to meet in Australia for "The Gathering". At first, finding common ground was difficult...but as the days passed, they discovered that they have quite a bit in common as far as some of their struggles & beliefs. By the end of the movie they feel they are all brothers & sisters & you leave the movie with a feeling of hope. That it is possible for people to come together as one to change things for the better.

Julian Lennon narrates & appears in the movie as well. His remix of "Saltwater", which is heard in length at the end of the film, just adds to this feeling of hope.

Bonus Features on the DVD include the original opening of the film, a new video for "Saltwater" & a great interview with Julian, himself.

I highly recommend this film for those who care about this beautiful world we live on & would like to see people come together in peace & unity to save it."
An Important Film
Alydar | New York | 12/10/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Just finished watching this documentary and said to myself, " What a must see film for high school students on Earth Day". Yes, besides our wildlife, there are cultures endangered so we REALLY ARE ALL CONNECTED. Julian thank you for getting this project done. Students today must look beyond the walls of their classrooms.
The only reason for a 4 and not 5 star was it was a little too long - the message was there and I imagined about five times a perfect ending scene . Yes, the "white feather" ((SEE THE FILM)) is watching over the earth and all its people. Peace, John and thank you Julian."
Our Connection to Earth

"Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everybody should get this and learn how we are all inter related on the beautiful earth, and not to kill or hurt any living thing on this earth.
I am considering becoming a Vegetarian.
