Something you'd throw on for half an hour for the kids while you get the dishes done. Shallow, dippy for adults. Get far more satisfaction from YouTube vid's. Waste of time to have driven to library to pick this up...and then watch it.

I am into ethology so this is a great documentary for me. I actually watched it with my 6 years old and she enjoyed it too! There are "two stories" one about orangutans and one about elephants.
It is not too long (about 40 minutes) so I think many people could enjoy it.

kids age 7 and 9 loved it. Its made by Disney. It tells the story of 3 animals from the time they are babies. Adorable and educational.

Another great Imax film, the amazing story of two women who raise orphan elephants and oranatangs. Love the scene of the elephants playing soccer. A must see for any animal lover.
