This film has been awaited all over France for quite a while. It is extremely well done and there are some splendid shots of migrating birds from well-known locations in France to less-known places far away. What I find missing in this beautiful documentary is a cohesive narrative. There are unexpected jumps from one shot to another, captions are neither here nor there, and they are so minute that you need binoculars to read them! It is a great shame that such a rich source of material, exquisite photography, was not properly edited and commented on.

The Synopsis for Winged Migration (2001) 1080p
This documentary follows several species of migratory birds over a four year filming period. These birds travel several hundreds if not thousands of miles toward the equator in the autumn, and make the return journey to their higher latitude summer homes in the spring, always taking the same route, using the natural compasses of the universe, the stars, to find their way. Some species, like the arctic tern, even fly from pole to pole. These long and often torturous treks are a matter of survival, to live in a hospitable climate and find sources of food. With the exception of migratory penguins, travel over oceans is especially difficult as the birds have little refuge unless there is something floating on the water, such as a ship, on which to land. Otherwise they must continue flying until they reach land. Some will not survive the migration due to predators, including man, illness or injury. Although the migrations themselves are done as a community, once the birds reach their ...

a slight disappointmentReviewed bytbaybarsVote: 6/10
I really cannot summarize this documentary in one word. I was awe-struck,elated, saddened...this movie has so many emotional experiences in one90-minute time frame that I am completely overwhelmed by it. Thecinematography is so outstanding it is nearly unbelievable. That samecinematography is behind much of the emotional upheaval of this documentary. Some of the vistas and scenery are so breathtaking that you might just findyourself crying from the joy of looking at something so beautiful.
The musical score for this movie is half the experience. I don't think themovie would have been the same at all without it. The movie speaks to yourheart, but the music speaks to your soul. The birds themselves are stunningand you feel their complete freedom, as well as the effort it takes to flythese tremendous distances, all based on the instinct of survival. Not allsurvive, and you will feel the sadness and pain of the sacrifices made alongthe arduous trip.
I happen to be a bird lover, but I don't think you need to be one to fullyappreciate this movie. It is so much more than just about birds, it's thelife, struggle and survival of all wild creatures who follow theirinstincts. If you see this movie, and I think everyone should, you will comeaway from it with a greater feel and respect for nature and it's struggles,as well as it's magnificent beauty. And I, for one, believe that respectwill make each of us a better person.
I give this movie a 10.
Even if you are not a bird watcher, the magnificent film footage will take your breath away. Using motorized gliders, you will view the world as the birds do and fly with them as they migrate south for the winter. The cameras take you through all four seasons with various kinds of birds as they follow their instincts through all kinds of tough weather and situations. Although the film could've been used for social commentary, I think you will find that the filmmakers' choice to provide the viewer with an objective bird's eye view was both appropriate and tasteful. All you need to do is sit back, enjoy and imagine that you are 'just one of the birds'! The stunning views of the landscape alone make this a must-see film. I highly recommend the "making of" extended DVD version to get a first-hand look at the special relationship that developed between the crew and the birds.
