Comments: This is a documentary with a well narrated voice and the scenery is stunning. The narrator does have trouble pronouncing a few words. The chimps are trapped in a gorge cut off from all other chimps. About twenty five chimps live here. Brutus is the Alpha Male of this group.
We get to watch them as they go about their lives. We see them gathering food, hunting and looking after their children.
These chimps are facing many threats. The worst is their numbers are so small.
The filming of these chimps is amazing showing them close up. We follow along as the chimps have a daily fight to survive each day.
The more you watch of these chimps living their lives the more you want to watch. There is drama and competition among them.
Brutus is focused apon as he is the leader and he is a strong one.
