    A fabulous rare find. A subtitled, German language version was made, but this English-dubbed one is the one that won the Oscar. David Attenborough and Planet Earth and technological advances have brought us greater 4K clarity in terms of the African continent. But the filmmakers’ personal passion, as presented here, is timeless and has never been exceeded.
