Peuple migrateur, Le : Movie Review

Birds are very mysterious creatures, and they never seem more so than in Jacques Perrin's marvelous documentary "Winged Migration." The movie, which opens a window into the migratory travels of all sorts of birds, is more visual than educational, and that's what's so revelatory about it: It never feels like one of those dry, pedestrian nature specials that you happen upon while restlessly flipping channels. Those shows come off like a collusion between a cameraman and a narrator to make order out of the chaos of nature, and to arrange it into textbook-neat columns from which we can take away fat, discrete nuggets of information.

See for full review.
