Win DVD: Arctic Tale
In this heart-warming film that follows the real-life adventure of two animal friends, ARCTIC TALE portrays the wild beauty of the Arctic and its inhabitants, available on DVD on September 8 2008 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
From National Geographic Films, the producers of March of the Penguins, and Paramount Vantage, the studio that brought you An Inconvenient Truth, ARCTIC TALE follows the story of Nanu, a polar bear cub and Seela, a walrus pup, through their exhilarating and moving struggles for survival.
Brought to life by narrator Queen Latifah, viewers will be entranced as she tells the story of two very different Arctic creatures who live in this vast snow kingdom at the top of the world. Armed only with their natural instincts and mothers’ guidance, these inspiring animals face countless trials and challenges in a beautiful icebound world that is rapidly melting beneath them.
Back to Nature: The Extreme Production of Arctic Tale
The couple’s early trips to the Arctic lasted about two months at a time. As they learned more about the various behaviors of walruses and bears, they would stay anywhere from six to eight months a year.
For the better part of a decade, Ravetch and Robertson were based out of a town called Igloolik in the northern Foxe Basin of Canada.
I'd say Arctic Tale has more of a story than March of the Penguins. And the photography may be more impressive. It's well worth seeing. Rob's rating: 8.0 of 10.
