What are critics saying?
Jacquet's movie is as visually ravishing as "Winged Migration," and more gripping.
As a zoological spectacle the movie is riveting. But the narration tries to make us think of these adorable animals as if they saw the world in human terms.
Sometimes harrowing, sometimes hokey, sometimes heartwarming nature documentary.
As uplifting as anything you will find in theaters.
Luc Jacquet's exquisitely shot eye-of-God study of a year in the lives of these distinctive birds is a nature film built with a feel for the epic and a love of operatic narrative.
The Central Park Zoo is cheaper, you can walk away from the penguins after 10 minutes, and it has snow monkeys and beer.
The glacially beautiful new documentary March Of The Penguins confirms that no computer-animated or hand-drawn penguin could ever match the curious majesty of the genuine article.
This sentimental but riveting film has no qualms about playing on our emotions.
