    Exposes children to concepts of death of children and parents

    This was a very well done documentary however I was not prepared for the nightmares and loss of innocence caused by this movie. My just turned six year old internalized the death of the mother penguin who was eaten by the seal and understood the deaths times three of baby penguins and eggs. This has caused problems we were not ready for. We left the movie theatre early. The G rating doesn't reflect the material content.

    A Beautiful documentary but not a love story

    But for the made-for-America narrative in which we are told "This is a love story," I would have given it 5 stars, for I was fascinated by the story of the penguins' grueling trek, their survival and nurturing of the young. This was a beautiful documentary and was deserving of more than Disney-fying the narrative. Let's hope that National Geographic goes back to straight docs. Still, it is definitely worth seeing!!

    a winner for sdults and children

    We took our supercharged 4 year-old grandson to see this movie. He was absolutely spellbound He talked about it for days and still becomes animated when he sees a picture of a penguin.

    Can Morgan Freeman do female impersonations?

    I have not seen the version with Morgan Freeman but have seen the original French version recently (outside USA). Accompanying the sublime cinematography and sound, two French narrators, one male and one female, poetically interpret a pair of Emperor Penguin's essential relationship to keep their chick alive. It is wonderfully scripted (even in subtitles) and to me, is what glued the film together for it's feature-length duration. I'm sure Freeman's script must be craft-fully done but I can't imagine a singular narrative having the same charming effect. It may be worth tracking down the original version if you you can.
