FOR THE LOVE OF ANIMALS
Lately I have been reading and watched some amazing movies that are animal related. If you love animals too, then these movies or books might be of interest. What drew me to the type of films is because the films depict REAL WOMEN who were unique , strong and amazing.
Like Karin Blixen whose life took her from Europe to Africa. Another is Diane Fossey and her dedication to protect the gorillas and lastly the story of June Adamson and the lion Elsa. There is something about all these women that I admired and thought what amazing lives they had. So brave and strong they were.
But I also was drawn to their stories because I love animals. As a kid growing up I would sometimes find small injured animals and bring them home. One was a small baby robin, or frog and salamanders. I always wanted to be a Veterinarian or working with animals.
So of course a good movie with animals and humans caring for them is something I like to watch. Also I was hoping to get out to the zoo and see the new additions, but in the meanwhile I can enjoy it somewhat on the screen.
OUT OF AFRICA, an Oscar winner with two outstanding actors, Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.
Based on the book written by Karin Blixen . Its the story of a real woman who travelled and lived in Kenya. . The film is one of my favourites for the stunning scenery and views. To imagine seeing the wild animals in their natural habitat is truly amazing.
GORILLAS IN THE MIST
Another film worth to see and tells the life of one woman Diane Fossey, who studied the mountain gorillas and worked to protect them. Its a drama with many ups and downs , but worth seeing.
This film I recall seeing as a kid , its one film that still makes me tear up when I see it. ITs touching , funny and a good film for the whole family.
Based on a true story about Elsa the lion and the woman who cared for her.
