Reviews

Born in the jungles of Borneo forty years ago, Nénette the orangutan is now the most senior inhabitant of the world s oldest zoo and the star of this awe-inspiring, tender and funny film, from the director who charmed the world in 2002 with the BAFTA nominated ETRE ET AVOIR. Also includes Un Animal Des Animaux, in which Phlibert visits Paris legendary Museum of Natural History and records the painstaking work of artists who repaint, re-feather, fluff and retro-fit a menagerie of stuffed animals

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This much-lauded film about a captive Orangutan is a detailed study of one female, taken over a long time. At first, the attention to detail, and the obvious sympathy and love of the keepers and film-maker is touching. However, the viewpoint rarely changes (perhaps deliberately to highlight the captivity of the animal)and the narration becomes monotonous. Maybe this is the whole point of the film but it doesn't make for compelling viewing. It is a thoughtful documentary that doesn't really pose too many questions, or supply any answers. Perhaps it should have.

Format: DVD
What dies in the caged animal,what mysterious animal otherness we will never see because its wilderness has become zoo-bound?This documentary is half a self-portait,half a recognition of some profound otherness,mystery in the animal,we would like to become.This orangutan a Mona Lisa for our sketches and reflections,an ape of our essence.As Philbert says,he surrenders control as there's so much you don't know about what you're doing.Nenette retains her mystery,hence no animal experts are allowed in. The questions are left open,so the viewers have to participate. Behind the thick glass of our anxiety we may speculate what really would happen if we came face to face.What effect do the passing images,sounds of people have on the ape?Do they die because she is encaged and can't use them?Everything pours in towards this staggering silent emptiness in the beast's heart.The lack of the need to fend for itself to find its own food and shelter have prolonged its life,made its despondent flesh sag,depressed its features.Was her brain in a deep sleep of autumnal hibernation?Attenborough found more meaning in relating to gorillas in the wild than anything else he'd experienced.Philbert's trick is to just film the orangutans.

Having been taken from,the jungles of Borneo at age 3 and stayed for 39 years in the Jardin de Plantes zoo,she had got through 3 husbands and had 4 children,only one of which remained with her to ward off loneliness as she was too old to mate.In her 4.30 pm meals of yoghurt and tea they had put in birth control pills,as they were not sure of incest.Thoughtful about his craft and cinema in general,Philbert says: `The beauty and importance of a film aren't linked to the subject.
