While this film may not live up to some of the hype, it is certainly worth watching. Most people that write about this film either make it sound like it is a bunch of junk or a great documentary. I believe that this is not at all the case. While I don't know enough about penguin research, the film's focus on the asexual act of reproduction is a great place to start. I found myself thinking about the pros and cons of an asexual versus a homosexual penguin. The documentary is also great in its questioning of the views of asexuality and the gay rights movement. But to me, the best part of the film was how the different viewpoints were treated. When the film's director says that penguins are descended from apes, this is completely believable. As far as I am concerned, we are all descended from apes. The filming was fantastic, the characters were fascinating and interesting, and the "opening scene" was a great introduction to the film.

I had the good fortune to view this documentary in Denver. It was a first and, while the question of how to find health-care coverage for all Americans was a sensitive topic, the movie did a superb job in portraying the majority of Americans in a positive light. It also pointed out the importance of health-care spending, despite the fact that it affects everyone regardless of age or race, and not only affects the people that are the most vulnerable. There is also a lot to be learned from the movie about politics and how one's beliefs and bias are often not so different from one's neighbor's or coworker's or relative's. What struck me most was the fact that both Americans and Canadians are presented in a very positive way. Americans are presented as having a wealth of culture and belief and even a sense of family. Canadians are presented as having a wealth of tradition and a sense of family. Both are presented in a way that is hopeful and inspiring. I recommend this film to all viewers of all ages.

This is an excellent film. It is a brilliant way to teach people about penguins and other animals. The characters in the film are amazing and you can relate to them in your everyday life. This film also gives a real insight into why some people behave the way they do. This film also has the perfect ending. I would highly recommend this film to anyone. If you don't think this is good, then you are wrong. If you have children, then it's a must see.

i have watched this film on it's first release back in '98, and like many of the people that had seen the film before i was surprised by the lack of content of the film. But it was interesting to see how the film had changed in the years that have passed since. The score is now being used in a more commercial and more mainstream fashion. Since then, the music has been used in movies like "The Last Emperor" and "A Most Violent Year". Which of course was the best music of the film, and was used in the film to the fullest. The film however was still very much a part of its time. It is a great film that has taken on a whole new meaning over time. Just because it has changed so much in the years that have passed, doesn't mean that the film has aged too badly. To anyone who hasn't seen it, please watch it. It is still an interesting film. I personally didn't like the movie as much when i saw it in the theatre back in '98, but i have seen it now and still enjoy it to a degree. The film is very similar to the 1995 film "The Cove" in terms of how it portrays the ocean. The film takes place in the Caribbean and is very similar to the 1995 film. There are a few differences though, and that is the fact that the film is set in the same area of the ocean as the 1995 film. The original was set in the Pacific Ocean, whereas the latest was set in the Atlantic Ocean. Also, the 1995 film was directed by Tom Cruise, whereas the film that came out last year is directed by Mike Cahill. Also the 1995 film was shot in Jamaica, whereas the latest one is shot in Antigua. This is just a small list of the similarities and differences between the two films. Now to some of the good things. The music in the film is used to a much greater extent. The songs are used more and more often. The film is shown in a way that it is much more of a documentary, as opposed to a long film that is mainly the film's subject matter. The film is also much more realistic, which is something that I think that some films nowadays lack. To say the least, this film is a different type of film that i would recommend to any viewer. It is not for everyone and it's not for all. To me, this is a good film that is a part of it's time period. I would recommend it to anyone, and also anyone who just wants to watch a good, entertaining film that can really do it's job. I would rate this film 7/10, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys movies.

I was looking for something to watch while I was thinking about my life and depression. This film has changed my life. I didn't want to watch it because I didn't want to believe I was so depressed. But after watching it I felt so much better and I was at peace with myself. I thank them for making such a wonderful film. I hope that they will make another film about depression.

A highly inspirational documentary that also makes you feel good about your own life. The overall message is: "you have the right to know" and not to keep secrets. You can never know if it was the right decision or not. So do your best to see everything for yourself. Also, don't hide your happiness, if it is something you have forgotten. (7/10)

Best for anyone who's loved penguins, whether or not you can be a penguin lover. I knew nothing about penguins and this movie brought me to look at them from a new perspective, how they live and interact with the people around them and what happens when someone with special needs comes into the family. This was a film about how one species lives in a harsh environment in a harsh environment, and the struggle to live in that environment. No one group dominates, and everyone learns to cooperate and learn to communicate. There is no question that humans do more harm to penguins than they do to us humans. I hope to see more films like this one. It's a beautiful story about how one species comes into a new environment and how they adapt to that environment. I loved how the film used different birds to represent different species. I felt like it was more than just a film about penguins. It was more than just a story about penguins. It was a beautiful film about how one species comes into a new environment and how they adapt to that environment.
