Jacques Perrin, a noted actor and film producer in his native France, decided to document this process, using flocks of birds who had been trained to ignore the distractions of his camera crew, and employing a variety of state-of-the-art technology to capture as unobtrusively as possible the flight paths of different birds from around the globe. The result was Winged Migration, a visually dazzling documentary that records the flight of dozens of different birds as they follow their navigational instincts and make the taxing journey to more temperate climates in the fall, all chronicled without the use of narration. The first directorial effort for Perrin, Winged Migration received an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary. Mark Deming, RoviRead Less

I noticed that my mom, who had some memory loss, could watch this movie over and over and each time be moved by the beauty. I skipped the parts in which birds got killed because those bothered her.
But it is CALM . Most movies made by younger generation today have such LOUD background music that older people cannot even hear the dialogue, almost as if they are deliberately excluding entire generations.
This movie is wonderful.
Also, I noticed that the staff where my mom lived had the TV on - loud and violent - to channels the STAFF wanted to see, instead of to programs aimed at the happiness of the residents. This movie never failed to please anyone who saw it and could just be in background all the time.
