Movie Summary

Released:

Rating:
G
Animals Are Beautiful People is a 1974 film from director Jamie Uys about the comic adventures of African wildlife during the course of a single year. Set in Angola, Botswana, and elsewhere in the southern half of the continent, animals as varied as elephants, giraffes, and baboons share the stage with some of nature's most deadly and unusual creatures, scorpions and egg-eating snakes. Entertaining scenes -- warthogs and other wildlife become inebriated after feasting on decaying, fermenting Marula fruit -- make Animals Are Beautiful People more a comic drama and less a documentary. Antics of drunken animals unfold humorously on the screen to the background of a captivating and stirring classical musical score. Familiar orchestral favorites including Hungarian Dance Number 5 by Johannes Brahms and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's timeless Waltz of the Flowers from The Nutcracker Suite make Animals a movie that fans of Uys' other work (The Gods Must Be Crazy) will relish.
