Information and Film Reviews for Winged Migration the Movie

Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Exhilarating documentary that follows the migratory patterns of birds. Shot from 1998 to 2001 by some 15 cinematographers throughout 40 countries, using a variety of gliders, balloons, and long-lensed cameras to get close enough to record the working muscles on a crane's back, among other sights. Terns float on arctic ice, rockhopper penguins waddle, gannets feed, sand grouse perform their mating dance, and flocks fly. The minimal narration identifies the birds and their journeys. English and French with subtitles.
