  • The rise and fall of the European deep forest


    "Seasons" (2015 release from France; 97 min.) is a nature documentary that looks at the rise (after the Ice Age) and fall (since the arrival of humans in particular as from the Middle Ages) of the deep forests in Europe. As the movie opens, we get a crash course in how forests grew and expanded in Europe following the 80,000 years of the Ice Age. It's not long before we settle in those deep forests and we get a glimpse and more as to what animal life was (is?) like in the forest. Deer, bison, wolves, owls, foxes, bears, spiders, horses, porcupines, birds of many kinds, all make their appearances. Couple of comments: this is the latest documentary from French director Jacques Perrin, best known for his previously acclaimed films "Winged Migration" and "Disney's Oceans". Here he goes in similar territory as in "Winged Migration", in fact there is footage in "Seasons" that follows birds migrating towards the Arctic Circle, and it's as if you are flying along, just unbelievable footage. The first hour of the documentary, focusing on "the golden age of the forest", is absolutely terrific. The footage on the ferocious fight between 2 bears is amazing, as is the chase of several horses by a wolf pack. Wow, just wow. The documentary loses steam when in the last half hour it goes political and addresses the effects of those bad humans on nature in general, and forests in particular. But in the end it's all about the amazing footage that Perrin and his crew were able to garner for this documentary. Please note that the title "Seasons" is a bit misleading as the movie really doesn't focus on the weather-related seasons. "Seasons" opened last weekend without any pre-release fanfare or buzz at my local art-house theater here in Cincinnati. If it weren't for Perrin's name being on this, I doubt that I would've paid much attention to this. The Thursday evening screening where I saw this at was attended okay but not great (maybe 10 people in the theater). This documentary is not earth-shattering or even all that revelatory, but I enjoyed it for the footage. Worth checking out if you get a chance, be it in the theater, on Amazon Instant Video or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray.

  • WOW, what a treat.....


    I didn't pay too much attention when this film started on my screen, but then the seamless flow of this documentary just caught my eyes and I was lost in its beautiful and unpretentious cinematography to the end. It was like reading one of the most beautiful poem, yet at the same time, also like watching a merciless changing of the world, a world that once was so rich and abundant in giving and taking by the nature, a world of nature where a story that only the forest could tell you, a world that was once well-balanced by all the creatures and the plants until we humans appeared, a world then became so unbalanced by our endless desires and appetite to gain more living space from the nature, not just occupied but mindlessly ruined it. We humans are the most vicious and greedy species that bulldozed the nature and turned it into so-called real estates, landlords and property owners. We invented laws to protect what we robbed from the nature, we claimed ownership to the land we developed from the wildness of the nature, and then built property lines by fences and walls, and put up "Private Property-No Trespassing" warning signs all over the world. We are robbers but self-claimed as developers, we destroyed everything in our way and praised the destruction as progress. We polluted the nature, the air, the water, the earth around us, these natural existences were raped by us since day 1 when we appeared and called it as "The beginning of the civilization". We privatized almost everything that we could put our hands on and ruined it as we wished and preferred, and we excused ourselves as civilized citizens of the world of nature, but in fact, we were robbers of the nature. This "Season" is trying so hard to remind we people to be friend with the nature, but I doubt it's a wishful thinking just like all kinds of prayers that we humans would have to come up with when we kneel at our bedsides or in the church, giving our wishful thinkings to the so-called "God", a non-exist creation for us to be excused or forgiven for all the bad things we did and things we'd like to have or to be realized for free.

  • A True Masterpiece


    This may be the most underrated documentary that I have ever seen before , it's just too good for an average rating of 7.2 only , I would say 9 and half actually ! It might even be the best docoumentry that I have ever seen and I just don't understand why it's rated 7.2 only , the photography deserves a 10/10 , its that good ! and even though I twice actually I was still blown away by the documentary upon my 2nd viewing , it basically shows how humans developed with time from being very primitive to our modern world , and it also shows how the natural world was affected by them , some of scenes some the documentary were also actually quite upsetting as they showed the negative affects of mankind on the natural world ; like how they killed of all the wolves in Europe which I think got extinct in the 1880s , and how wars and explosions damage the wildlife , so overall it's a must watch and is recommended for families , but some scenes may be upsetting for youngsters , so this is a truly unique documentary which I think deserves a lot more attention and should be seen by anyone who has time for it

  • Absolutely Stunning.


    This is basically just a bunch of animals freaking out in the forest. And it's one of the most mesmerizing, fascinating, beautiful things you'll ever see. Then humans come and mess it all up. But you already knew this. But the way it's told is just gorgeous. Even the most ardent nature-hating right-winger wouldn't be able to argue with the arc of wildlife's struggle to survive in the wake of man as it's told here. The footage in this film is breathtaking. You'll twist your brain trying to figure out how they got some of it. Mind-blowing. And gorgeous. Simply incredible.

  • But it was all Computer Generated Imagery!


    This is a beautifully produced, mesmerizing environmentalist advocacy piece. It cannot honestly be called a documentary due to the CGI basis for the film. I have no problem with anyone promoting their cause. However, this production is dripping with irony. The filmmakers use the most advanced computer technology to create the appearance of real, pristine vistas and wildlife activity before the advent of human interaction, but none of the scenes are actually real!
