Here’s a link (scroll through) to the National Geographic piece on the movie.
Here’s a link to my opinion of the movie.
Good camerawork and good moviemaking———-Yes.
Mostly bad ideas. Anthropomorphism, global warming wackiness (seeking to prove what you already believe), a lot of sentiment.
Kids: If you study science, and math, and one day come to make a discovery (even in a field not related to global climate change, zoology, animal intelligence or anything to do with the subject of An Arctic Tale) you will likely have done more than anyone involved in this movie. You will have done much more than me commenting on the movie.
Go for it.
