My wife and I saw this IMAX movie back in 1998 when it debuted on the IMAX screens. You lose a bit of the impact seeing it just on a TV, although I get the feeling that it will look pretty awesome on an HDTV.
Anyway, the IMAX film follows an elephant clan through one season, having to weather drought, etc. There's a heartbreaking scene where the clan comes across another female elephant whose calf has died.
But the real reason to get this DVD is for the "Making of" documentary. This is fascinating! It's chock full of details about IMAX, like the fact that one single frame of an IMAX film is the equivalent of two 70 mm frames put together; it's got about **ten** times the level of detail that a 35 mm frame has. Not only that, the documentary shows how they got the elephants used to their presence so that they could film them. It explains how the sound that you hear isn't actually contemporaneous with the picture, because the IMAX camera is so loud it would drown out a lot of ambient sound.

HASH(0x978429cc) out of 5 stars Beautiful photography of nature's most amazing animals June 19 2009
By Arnold - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
This wonderful documentary follows a small herd of elephants through a dry season. The series is narrated in first-person "by" an elephant (Avery Brooks)

The blu-ray quality is first rate with crystal clear images. Easily some of the best blues and greens I have seen on DVD. There are some great shots, including footage of a matriarch charging the camera. There were also several sad scenes in which the herd attempted to literally prop up a dead or dying elephant, showing the strength of emotional bonds between elephants.

My only complaint is that the documentary is pretty short (40 minutes), especially for the price. I would recommend renting it, unless you are a true elephant fanatic.

HASH(0x97842a20) out of 5 stars This DVD is as big as the elephants in it !!!!! Sept. 17 2001

The documentary isn't the only great thing on this DVD... you should see the "Making off"... Great images (I don't think someone will ever get on film an elephant charging as the one on this documentary - I saw this film in a theatre in Cape Town and I'm still holding my breath). The story is Ok...
If you love elephants or Africa... this is a must have !!!!!

HASH(0x97842cfc) out of 5 stars Nice Film July 2 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
but it really depends on the level of interest you have in elephants. Even though the photography is good; my interest in elephant's seem to have peak with this film. After a second viewing I was a little bored. I think a better balance Imax film is Africa: The Serengeti which has some spectacular photography and moves at a faster pace. This film conentrates on elephants and if you have a big interest in this subject you should be happy. There are some nice shots and one sequence were they use time lapse photography of a thunder storm was a highlight. But that sequence lasted for just 30 seconds. To be fair my interest in elephants is limited. My interest in Imax films is high. For me this film is a good rental but not one to buy.

I have a 12 year old grandson who is autistic. If you check your records, you will see I have ordered several over the past few years. He loves this movie. I now have 2 spare here at my house...He has one at his house....cause when one breaks (gets stepped on, etc.) we had better have another copy somewhere. Needless to say, there is something about this movie that he loves....that's good enough for me.
