Cry Of The Penguins
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
A young London biologist spends most of his time chasing girls rather than science. When the opportunity to go to the Antarctic to study a colony of penguins presents itself, he agrees to go, not so much for the benefit of science, but rather to impress the girl he has been chasing. The longer he stays there however, the more he becomes genuinely interested in the penguins fight for survival. As he finally prepares to go home, he is a changed man with a new perspective on life.

This edition of the movie is recorded from TV or someone's video tape. It's a homemade job. Guess that's why it's only $5.
The movie is reminiscent of Never Cry Wolf and other movies of one man alone in the wilderness. Hayley Mills is in about 1/3 of the movie but most of the time she and John Hurt are apart (he's off bonding with the penguins).
It's a sort of strange movie, but kind of fun to see. It was interesting to see that John Hurt really was young once upon a time. The time he spent with the penguins was pretty interesting, but don't get the idea that this is a romance. It's mostly a nature film. Maybe worth the $5, maybe not.
