Overview

The story of George Adamson, whose work helped inspire the book and subsequent film Born Free, is continued in the fact-based drama To Walk With Lions. In Kenya in the late 1980's, Tony Fitzjohn (John Michie) is a young man from London who has a job as a driver with a safari guide company. However, Tony's commitment is less to exploring the wilds than in picking up women (especially wealthy tourists), so when he's fired, Tony just wants to get another job fast to get airfare home. The first position he finds is assisting George Adamson (Richard Harris), who with his bother Terence (Ian Bannen) helps "rehabilitate" lions from zoos and returns them to the wild. George is more devoted to his animals than to most people, but a bond of respect and understanding develops between George and Tony, and Tony develops a similar rapport with the lions. Tony also develops a different sort of attachment to Lucy (Kerry Fox), a British anthropologist studying indigenous tribes in Kenya. However, the tone shifts when George's ex-wife, Joy (Honor Blackman) arrives for a visit. George and Joy did not separate on cordial terms, and their meeting is brief and contentious (while Joy made a tidy sum from the book Born Free, George never received any of the money for his continuing work with the lions). Shortly after her departure, Joy is killed by one of her servants. While To Walk With Lions is in several respects critical of the wildlife policies of the Kenyan government, the film was financed in part by Kenyans and was filmed in Kenya with the support and cooperation of state authorities.

I thought this movie was great. It really touched my heart to know so much about the loins. They are beautiful animals,it's sad that a man had too give his life for something he believed in. I am truly grateful for the work he began and even more thankful for the work that the others still do in his memory. i just wish that we could stop the killing of africa's beautiful animals. they were there first let them have the land and freedom. Africa's animals are so very beautiful and if the world didn't have people who kill to make money off of the ivory, horns or whatever else they believe they can make money from. I wonder how they would feel if their family was kill for their teeth!!!!!! I bet they would not like it at all!!!!!!! It is a pitty that the animals have to die horrible cruel deaths just so so man's pocket can have inhuman money in it!!!!!! If I knew of some way i could stop the killing I would do it because I don't think the beautiful animals should pay the PRICE for mans stupid ways of making money. I take my hat off to the men and women who have given the lives so that the animals could live in peace. I am ashamed of this world's way of thinking, people will stand by the country after 9-11 but they will not join in the fight for innocent animals that are brutally murder every sec of everyday!!!!!!Why is it we call 9-11 a tragedy but we could careless about the animals that are being brutally murder for some stupid human to have very thick pockets. In way i think we put ourselves in Bin's shoes because we are just as screwed in the head as him because we do nothing to stop the killing of innocent animals!!!!!!!! Kris
