Plot Summary

Discover one of nature's last great mysteries in The Crimson Wing, a miraculous story of love, courage and survival from the landmark Disney nature collection. In a place like no other on the planet, the dramatic and desolate Lake Natron in northern Tanzania, you'll witness a spectacle unlike anything you've seen before — a million crimson-winged flamingos arrive to continue the circle of life. Focusing on the adventures of a single chick, and set against a backdrop of never-before-filmed landscapes, The Crimson Wing is a visually stunning journey into the life and struggles of the mysterious and inspiring flamingo.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The script is more mystical than factual - the subtitle is Mystery Of The Flamingos - which can be cloying to those of us raised on Attenborough. But this is still a breathtakingly beautiful reflection on the fragile nature of life. – Empire Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: This one's a corker: the cinematography is exquisite; it's admirably devoid of any overt anthropomorphism; the narration, while a little too mythical in context, is informative. – Derek Adams, Time Out, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Crimson Wing is a Disney nature film. Be aware of this and all that goes with it and you might yet discover the ennobling documentary hidden beneath the wretched excess. – Richard Luck, Film4, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: If the narration is sometimes laid on a little thick, there remains something fascinating about these curious, balletic creatures. – Xan Brooks, Guardian, Jun 24, 2010

Soundtrack?

The music in this film is really remarkable. It's by CInematic Orchestra. It's also impossible to find. I wish iTunes made it available, the UK store has!

The Crimson Wing(Mystery of the Flamingos)

Great movie for the whole family.

Absolutely outstanding

This is one of the finest natural history documentaries ever made with outstanding cinematography. The scenes of the flamingo chicks leaving en mass from their island birth place are unforgettable. Don't understand why this did not win bucket loads of awards.
