For those who haven't seen this movie (now showing in Melbourne), I offer
the following 'snapshot review' after seeing it last night with about 290+
other Birds Australia/Bird Observers Club members.

Venue: Rivoli Theatre Camberwell (Melbourne)
Subjects: mostly northern hemisphere birds, particularly geese
Cinematography: superb aerial shots from balloons, ultra light aircraft etc
Soundtrack: English (but with a French accent).  Volume, far too loud.
Some of the music and songs seemed inappropriate for the subject matter.

Recommendation: a good wildlife/bird movie, well worth seeing but don't
expect any 'Australian' birds, other than possibly some of the albatrosses
or penguins.

Well organised by the Vicgroup section of Birds Australia, with sparkling
wine and club sandwiches following the movie and even a BA 'show bag' to
take home!.

Profits to Broome Bird Observatory, Western Australia.
