About the Movie
After traveling the world alongside migrating birds (Winged Migration) and diving the oceans with whales and manta rays (Oceans), Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud return to more familiar ground: the lush green forests and megafauna that emerged across Europe following the last Ice Age. Winter had gone on for 80,000 years when—in a relatively short period of time—the ice retreated, the landscape metamorphosed, the cycle of seasons was established, and the beasts occupied their new kingdom. It was only later that man arrived to share this habitat, first tentatively as migratory hunter/gatherers, then making inroads in the forest as settled agriculturalists, and later more dramatically via industry and warfare. With its exceptional footage of animals in the wild, Seasons is the awe-inspiring and thought-provoking tale of the long and tumultuous shared history that inextricably binds humankind with the natural world.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Planet Earth" might have made us tougher to impress, but "Seasons" has the advantage of its focus on a timeline, showing the gradual incursion of man into this earthly paradise.
Fresh: This gorgeously cinematic docu ties said footage to a leaden all-purpose eco-consciousness message that nearly spoils the otherwise timeless experience.
Fresh: Another testament to the breathtaking wonder of the natural world.
Fresh: The film's strong point is the unquestionable beauty of the imagery, filmed over a four-year period in the national parks and animal reserves of Poland, Romania, Norway, Holland and Scotland.
Me and my cat enjoyed Seasons very much. It is a beautiful piece of work that subtly echoes it's message.
My cat was mesmerized by this film,...as was I. Beautiful to see a unique forest landscape in Europe.
