no narrator

A pet monkey is being transported on a small plane. The plane crashes and the money has to survive in the wild Amazon jungle. Narration can be problematic if done badly. A normal Disney movie would give this monkey a human voice. Without that voice, it's left up to the audience. No matter what, the nature photography with all these animals is compelling enough to keep my attention. It's a different experience.

Children's movie from start to finish

"Amazonia" tells us the story of a little Capuchin. It's not really a documentary, but more a fictitious story with an animal as the main "actor". And more animals as actors that are obviously not realizing that they are acting. I'd imagine that it wasn't easy at all to get the animals to "act" the way the movie makers wanted them to. The result is fairly entertaining. One of the scenes that stays memorable is where the little monkey pokes his tongue out at a snake who tried to catch him. This scene is also used int he trailer and especially the younger audiences totally loved it. There's also some drama included like when he leaves his group with the female monkey as the leader won't accept him as part of them and it's nice to see the little monkey meet many other animals: crocodiles, big cats, tapirs, sloths and how he interacts with them. Children will enjoy it, but you should really only watch it for the story. The few moments when the film tries to get documentary-style or scientific, it does not succeed, sometimes even gives contradictory statements about which the largest animals in the area are (tapirs? cats of prey?). This is a bit disappointing as director Thierry Ragobert is fairly experienced with the subject as he has worked on several nature documentaries already, but also on other subjects like religion for example. The beginning with the plane crash and the pilot simply leaving the plane and never being heard of again felt a bid odd to me. However, they had to find a frame for the little monkey being exposed to wilderness and they found one about which younger audiences won't complain. Congrats to Venice Film Festival for giving this fairly obscure movie a prize and making it a bit more seen this way maybe. It reminded me a bit of a live action version of the animated film "Rio", even if in its center we don't have birds. Let me finish this review by saying that I quite liked the ending where humans are described as the major enemy to this wonderful jungle wildlife world. Crucial statement and I really liked that they included it at such a significant position (i.e. the end), so it stays well in the minds of people.

Nice, educational and magic

Amazonia is for every one who loves our earth with its magic nature. It shows very nice and interesting pictures from the oldest jungle on our planet with their high trees. The sound and audio are well tuned. The funny scenes are well studied and executed. The running time is not so long and okay so far. Congratulations to the director who had this super idea. Thank you giving us so many precious informations about our greatest treasure that we have all to protect. I am glad that this story sends an important message to the audience. For all these reasons I give 8/10. Too underrated on IMDb.
