Film Review: The Valley of the Wolves

Amir presents his review of French documentary film La Vallee des loups (The Valley of the Wolves).  Filmmaker Jean-Michel Bertrand, who grew up in the Alps, spent three years alone, single-mindedly reading clues and seeking out the wolves in their natural habitat. He employed multiple motion-activated camera set-ups in his search, and, gradually, he not only found a wolf pack, but he also managed to closely observe them—and then ended up being accepted by the group.
