ITEM#: 10099580Coming from a French director, Luc Jacquet, the miraculous MARCH OF THE PENGUINS would have to be a love story. And so it is. The film explores the mating rituals of the emperor penguin, one of the most resilient animals on earth. Each summer, after a nourishing period of deep-sea feeding, the penguins pop up onto the ice and begin their procession across the frozen tundra of Antarctica. Walking doggedly in single file, they are a sight to behold. Hundreds converge from every direction, moving instinctively toward their mating ground. Once there, they mingle and chatter until they find the perfect mate--a monogamous match that will last a year, through the brutal winter and into the spring. During that time, the mother will give birth to an egg and then leave for the ocean to feed again. The father will stay to protect the egg through the freezing blizzards and pure darkness of winter, which would be deadly to practically any other species. Finally, with spring, the egg hatches and the baby penguins are born. Mothers return from the sea to reunite with their families and feed the starving newborns, while the fathers are finally relieved of their protective duties after months without food. This remarkable story is narrated by Morgan Freeman, whose dignified voice gives the penguins the grave admiration they deserve. But even more incredible is the photography, which shows the penguins hunting underwater, sliding on the ice, and even what definitely looks like kissing. At one point the camera even zooms inside the mouth of a penguin as it regurgitates food for its young. A story of love and, more strikingly, survival, MARCH OF THE PENGUINS is a stirring, eye-opening, and educational experience.

This was a very detailed documentary that really took you into the life of these incredible animals who live in an unbelievably harsh environment. The dedication, loyalty, commitment, and incredible perseverance that a penguin pair have to their young is unmatched. Not a 'feel good' movie for young children, but ages 9 and up will come away with genuine respect for them.Read More
the movie was great ,but the case that it came in was broken, but not the dvd. some of the other thingsi orderd still haven;t came been over a month.....very slow.......Read More
I think it is an execellent family movie, specially for children age 5 and up to watch with a parent present. It shows the life cycle of a flock of penguins; where, how they live, and the movie gives execellent oppotunities to discuss many issues such as the penguins love and affection for each other, shared parents responsibilities, co-operation in survival for as many as possible. It might be a little bit too long and repetative for smaller children, but the parent/adult watching together with a child can bring the child's attention to something going on that the child might not be aware of.Read More
A great story about courage,survival, commitment and love in the face of inpregnable obstacles of any kind while marching through the forces of nature. Must see Movie ... your soul will come to flesh.Read More
