    Excellent documentary

    If you like dolphins or freediving, this is the movie for you. Multiple scenes of humans swimming with dolphins, with no clumsy scuba gear.

    One of the best nature documentaries ever!

    This is one of the most inspirational nature videos of all time. Just the cinematography is enough to captivate any audience. It is a wonderful story and gives you a real good insight on the magic of dolphins and how important they are in our world. I have watched this in the privacy of my home and have showed it to my 5th grade class - everytime I watch it, it gets better. The music is also fantastic - Sting does a wonderful job here. I grabbed it as an impulse item and I am sure glad I did. Don't hesitate... trust me!
