SUN­DAY MARCH OF THE PEN­GUINS

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, ABC2 A re­mark­able Os­car-win­ning doc­u­men­tary about the har­row­ing breed­ing cy­cle of Antarc­tica’s em­peror pen­guins, which have de­vel­oped an in­ge­nious set of sur­vival in­stincts to go on liv­ing in their in­hos­pitable en­vi­ron­ment. The in­ti­mate yet un­ob­tru­sive footage of the birds’ nine-month or­deal builds into a mov­ing mon­u­ment to the sheer pre­cious­ness of a life. A mag­i­cally med­i­ta­tive and to­tally un­for­get­table movie ex­pe­ri­ence. Nar­rated by Mor­gan Free­man.

★★★★

Up close and per­sonal: Mar­chofthePen­guins of­fers an in­ti­mate look at em­peror pen­guins in Antarc­tica.
