Movie Summary

Rating:
G
March of the Penguins is an 2005 award-winning French nature documentary film about the long journey of the emperor penguins of Antarctica. Directed and by co-written by Luc Jacquet, the film is narrated by several people including Academy Award winning actor, Morgan Freeman, Romaine Bohringer, Jules Sitruk and Amitabh Bachchan. The movie begins in autumn as mature, breeding-age penguins are ready to mate. Once the penguins leave the ocean, they walk sometimes over 100 kilometers to their ancestral breeding grounds. Once they arrive, the penguins go through a delicate breeding process, whereby the embryo must be protected from the elements at all costs. The entire process can be arduous for both the parent penguins as well as the chicks. With every penguin who successfully arrives at the breeding grounds, countless others perish from starvation, the elements and predators such as the leopard seal. Once the chicks reach the point of tending to themselves, the process begins all over again.
