Disneynature: CRIMSON WING: Mystery Of The Flamingos provides a detailed look into the life cycle of flamingos. I really enjoyed the vivid color and beauty of this film, and it feels like you are right there with them! Before this film, I didn’t know much about flamingos, yet this film teaches so much! As for the kids, they weren’t as into this Disneynature film as much as they are when OCEANS is playing. I’m not sure whether they have more of a fascination with fish and the water, or if this was too ‘documentary’ for them. They were interested with the hatching and the babies and a bit after that, but then they lost interest and left the room to play. To me, that meant that I got to watch it in peace, so that was alright! Disneynature: CRIMSON WING is a great film for the nature lover, and bird fanatic. This is going to be so valuable one day when Isabelle is studying flamingos in school! You certainly learn a ton from this movie. And, I do appreciate the value in watching a film that teaches at the same time.
