A young boy tries to save the life of an eagle that had been thrown out of its nest.

User review:

There are quite a few kid/animal stories out there; what sets this one apart is the incredibly good cinematography. We’re not talking wolves, dogs or whatever here, we’re talking golden eagles and they’re not easy to film – so what we DO see on screen here is absolutely stunning (and I’m a fan of nature docs). They even managed to mount miniaturised HD cameras on an eagle to capture some flight imagery … there are some truly memorable scenes in this movie, among them a very intense, drawn-out scene where the young eagle tries his talons at a mountain-goat maybe one or two sizes too big for him. The winter scenes are haunting in their intensity, too.

But the movie as a whole gets only 7/10 from me – they tried to pep up the images with a story about a boy helping the young eagle to survive. Now I don’t think the idea absurd – in fact a simple framing story might be a nice idea – but they put too much weigth on this story. The emotional struggles between father and son simply don’t stand a chance against the for-life struggle of the animals, and so every scene we spend with the humans is – in my opinion – a scene wasted. No fault with the actors, btw – experienced acting as expected by veterans Moretti and Reno, and the boy was good, too – but it’s not their movie. It’s the eagle’s.
