I guess it’s not too late to write about this intimidating and extremely beautifully shot documentary directed by veteran french scientist-become-documentarian Luc Jacquet. "The Emperor’s Journey" tells a story of the Emperor Penguins of Antarctica and their instinctive journey of love to give birth to a new life every year in the most hostile environment on the planet. The Penguins are mostly monogamous and could recognise each other by their voices. During the mating season that last more than half a year, the father and mother Penguins take turns to look after their eggs and walks to a far away sea to fetch the food. The birth of the baby Penguins and their survival is just an amazing miracle that continues the circle of the Emperor Penguins life.
The film has been painstakingly shot for over 5 years. The production crew did their best to produce one of the best animal documentaries I’ve ever seen. The director cleverly edited the footage and put a perfect script to the story. This is like the tag line of the movie: "In the harshest place on Earth, love finds a way."
5 Stars out of 5 – Recommend to all. This real life struggling is not only educational but also encouraging.
