Movies: March of the Penguins

Penguins spend three months playing in the summer and the rest of the year on an incredible odyssey to bring forth and raise a single baby penguin. They march some hundred miles, endure Antarctic blizzards, fast for months, and balance the egg and then baby on the top of their feet, under their coats, to protect it from the elements. If it falls out, it will likely die. The dads endure as much as the moms as they have to wait and watch the baby (and fast) as the mothers head to the coast to feed.

Trust me, you don’t want to be a penguin in the next life.

The scenes of courtship are very poetic and beautiful.

Morgan Freeman narrates.
