A poignant call for change in this soul-stirring documentary about our relationship with the animal world.
5/5

Review

Frank Metivier’s impactful short documentary is a poignant call for animal compassion, delicately narrated by Thomaly Metivier, as it navigates the beauty of our natural landscapes juxtaposed against the dark underbelly of human civilization’s treatment of animals. Opening with captivating footage from North America, the film artfully establishes our connection with the planet and its diverse inhabitants.

However, the narrative takes a sinister turn as it unveils the harsh realities of our interactions with animals, ranging from zoos and bull racing to the brutalities of the food system. Through evocative cinematography, Metivier compellingly captures the stark contrast between the serene beauty of nature and the harshness of human actions, urging viewers to reflect on their choices and adopt a more compassionate lifestyle.

Thomaly Metivier’s narration adds a layer of emotional resonance, emphasizing the urgency of awareness and change. The film serves as a powerful catalyst for viewers to reconsider their relationship with animals, advocating for kindness, a plant-based diet, and a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of all living beings. Frank Metivier deserves commendation for crafting a thought-provoking documentary that strikes a chord, leaving a lasting impact on its audience.

Brief Synopsis

The film will take you on an extraordinary journey of discovery, combining earth’s beauty and one of our greatest needs as human beings. This short highlights the disconnect between our fellow earthlings, the animal and the shocking reality of our choices today.
