A guide to the Serengeti, worth seeing
This movie is a guide to one of Earth's most interesting places: the
Serengeti ecosystem, which includes Serengeti National Park in Tanzania
(as well as a handful of other reserves around the park, such as the
Ngorongoro Conservation Area) and the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.
The images we see are spectacular, although nothing new to someone used
to watch wildlife documentaries, meaning that there are no really
amazing scenes. The same I can say about the information we receive
from the narrator, James Earl Jones: if you are keen on the subject,
you'll not learn anything. But probably the film was only intended to
introduce anyone to this fascinating world that is the Serengeti.
It is evident that the main character of the movie is the wildebeest
migration: they are shown grazing, mating, crossing the Mara river and
being hunted by another main character, the lion. But we also receive
information about other animals such as elephants, cheetah, zebras,
gazelles, baboons and giraffes, and can take a glance of even more:
crocodiles, ostrich, Kori bustard, vervet monkeys, hyenas, vultures.
Although the animals are the bulke of the documentary, it also makes
reference to the volcanic origin of the Serengeti plains, to the
paleontological findings in the Olduvai Gorge (where our ancestors, the
Australopithecus, were found), to the Masai tribes that still live in
the area, and even to the tourists that visit it.
However, I have the feeling that some facts were dramatized, meaning
they were manipulated so that the documentary looked more as a "movie".
For example, when in the end the young wildebeest couldn't stand up,
the one we see jumping in the end was not the same that finally stood
up (in any case the effect was the same, the point is that the
wildebeest could stand up). And according to another documentary, the
Mara river is worst when the wildebeest go to Masai Mara, not when they
return to Serengeti.
Finally, the music was just spectacular, although I think it was not
composed for the movie. The composers are Hans Zimmer and Lebo M., the
ones who also wrote the music of The Lion King (by the way, not only
the score reminds of that movie in this documentary).
In conclusion, this is a worth seeing movie for anyone who likes the
subject, and a must see for someone who has no idea about it..
