This is not a nature documentary. It's a revisioning of what nature could have looked like before humans settled Europe in particular. It was created by training animals over a two year period and filming them repeatedly over the course of their development. As a piece of fiction, it's certainly interesting, but only made sense once I knew it was a reconstruction of possible pasts as the animals weren't always acting normal. It's interesting to watch, the filmography is interesting. But not a nature documentary in any sense of the word. It's a commentary on how much we've changed the landscape and how nature and the wilder creatures are mostly gone in Western Europe due to human influence.

This is some of the most amazing wildlife footage I've seen. Watch the bonus features to see how they got the cameras so close to the animals. The narration is not the focus of the film, it's all about the beauty of the footage.

So different from most nature docs. Human populations squeeze out all others, leaving solitary animals unable even to find a mate, Sad.

I love nature documentaries, but this one was lacking for me. I liked watching the animals, but it was painfully slow, and the narration is boring. I would look elsewhere for a good nature doc.

Perrin and Cluzaud are masters of nature cinema that focuses on the story from the viewpoint of the animal. Their technology is state-of-the-art. The result is a deeply calming film of nature that eliminates the huge distance from (wo)man to animal. Their work is all a must see.

It is not a documentary; it is merely animals doing what they do. The little narration that there is, is in French - no other options! I assume because getting Alec Baldwin or Morgan Freeman to do a voice over would have taken away from its Frenchiness. I fast-forwarded thru to see if there might be anything worth watching. There was not.

Awesome movie. The animals are the actors. Great sequences of up close action, chase sequences. They put in a lot of work to get this vision of a history of wildlife in Europe right.
