Tarka the Otter

A captivating tale set in the 1920s and based on the best-selling book by Henry Williamson. This is one of those highly unusual films told almost entirely from an animal's point of view, yet which refrains from Disney-style sentimentality and anthropomorphism. Set in 1920s England, the film simply follows the life of an otter; and shot over a period of two years captures the glory of the English countryside with some magnificent cinematography. Narrated by Peter Ustinov and with a screenplay by naturalist and author Gerald Durrell, this family film is a British film classic.
