This is a movie about transition from youth to manhood, of taking on responsibility and understanding its consequences. Hunting is not about the power to destroy or wantonly waste, but about conservation and the true value of life. A young boy moves from novice hunter to the successful culmination of a hunt of one of the most dangerous of game animals, the Cape Buffalo with an historic rifle used in Africa by Teddy Roosevelt in 1908. He learns that hunting is more than killing. We witness the torch being past from one generation to the next.
Human beings are a part of nature. Hunting eliminates the sanitized world of prepared food in super markets and restaurants and puts us back into nature and face to face with who and what we are. If we can come back from that experience with the same understanding and respect discovered by this boy and as written about by Teddy Roosevelt, we are better for it.
It is "in our blood", it has been for tens of thousands of years. If we loose contact with our past, and detach ourselves from nature, our futures will be aimless.
This is the single best movie to introduce people to the ideals of hunting.
