One of the unexpected movement films of the year, this French-made documentary about the mating cycle of emperor penguins was a surprise to moviegoers and became a blockbuster in the process. No wonder: March of the Penguins is cinema verite at its purest, an intimate and unsentimental representation of one of the true wonders of nature.

Morgan Freeman as the narrator explains, every year these untamed creatures leave their marine habitat and make a long and arduous journey over the treacherous ice of Antarctica with their traditional breeding ground. Guided by instinct and undeterred by the harsh climate and lack of food, penguins walk resolutely to its destination, participate in their unique mating ritual, and work tirelessly to provide homeless children in an ecosystem to implacable.

Director Luc Jacquet – which is not more praised by a classification team with patience, skill and dedication necessary to capture these unforgettable images in cinema – has a simple but compelling story that is as focused and dignified as the penguins . He draws us into his world and celebrates its unyielding determination, which makes caring for a surprising degree of duck creatures. It is a remarkable achievement, and you want to experience again and again.
