March of the Penguin

Michaela and I went to see March of the Penguin on Tuesday night. It was a very beautiful movie. I’m really glad I saw on the big screen.

The pan shoots of 1000’s of emperor penguins waking in single file was amazing. The complexity of the birthing process, and the dedication both partners have to raising the pup (not sure that’s the correct word for baby penguin). The complexity of survival and thinking about how it would have evolved left we with a feeling of owe, for how simple most animals life cycle is.

I found Morgan Freeman’s voice as the narrator, very relaxing and fitting to the movie.
