Dove Review

“Seasons” is a French documentary with English subtitles that tells the story of the changes of the earth through animals over thousands of years. It starts with the bitter cold of the animals in the snow-laden earth, then to new beginnings of the melting ice and crashing of ice cliffs into the ocean. Nature comes alive with new births of deer and wolves. Viewers are treated to birds feeding their young and the variety of young animals in nature. Then off to the pesky flies of summer that irritate buffalo, horses and other animals of the forest.

This film captures the movements, battles, and survival of many animals such as elk, moose, geese, cranes, frogs and even bugs. But the importance of the effect of humans as they populate the forest and take over the animals’ natural habitats is underscored as the animals migrate to higher safer areas to protect themselves.

It is an environmental history tracing the changes in the world from thousands of years ago to modern days. We award the Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages.
