This was a neat film which I really appreciated for its photography. Contained within is some truly magnificent wildlife footage, doubly spectacular due to the fact that it follows a rare white lion (who looks completely AWESOME when all grown up, if I may say). There is an endearing story told in the style of narration intermixed with footage, weaving back and forth between a story teller telling the story to some children around a campfire and a look at the actual story he is telling. It was certainly a breath of fresh air away from our usual formats and blockbuster feel – a heart warming film that will be candy to your eyes for the sheer natural beauty of our wonderful world.
The human components of the story are not what you should watch this film for, as may be expected. The acting is quite amateurish in places, but that really doesn’t matter; it surely is not what this film is all about.
Watch Letsatsi, the white lion, grow from a squeaky little cub to a magnificent adult white lion.
