Based on the true story of anthropologist Dian Fossey, whose travels to the African wilderness began as a study of the rare mountaingorillas and became a single-minded devotion to protect the animals from poachers and those who would capture the great apes to shipthem off to zoos.

Sad but worthwhile movie to watch

I do love watching Gorillas and so I thought I'd get this movie. I saw it years ago and I'd forgotten how grizzly it is. However, thanks to this pioneering woman, the species is growing.

The story of Dian Fossey
Verified purchase
I recently bought and watched this film after catching part of it on TV, I wanted to then buy and watch the whole thing. I have previously read Dian Fossey's original book 'Gorillas in the Mist', aswell as watching the National Geographic documentary on Dian Fossey and also reading 'In the Kingdom of Gorillas: Fragile Species in a Dangerous Land' so I already knew the story of Dian Fossey as well as some home truths about her character that weren't mentioned in Dian's original book. I still thoroughly enjoyed this movie despite already knowing the story, and although there were bit of the story that were changed slightly, bits left out and bits made more 'Hollywood', that is what I would have expected. However, they did show some of the aggressive sides to Dian's temperament in this movie and I thought Signorey Weaver played her well.

This is such an interesting story for anyone who does or doesn't already know the story of Dian Fossey, I would recommend to both.

I thought that the whole film was magnificent. It starred amazing actresses and actors with a very well written script! The 'making of' was fantastic as well! The whole thing was fantastic and made even better by the fact that they filmed with the actual gorillas!! Amazing story of an amazing woman! Full of supprises. 5*!!!
