From PBS - In the frigid valleys of Japan's Shiga Highlands, a troop of snow monkeys make their way and raise their families in a complex society of rank and privilege where each knows their place. Their leader is still new to the job and something of a solitary grouch. But one little monkey, innocently unaware of his own lowly social rank, reaches out to this lonely leader, forming a bond with him that manages over time to warm his less than sunny disposition. It is a rare and remarkable gesture that alters both their lives. Changing seasons bring new babies to care for, a profusion of insects and blossoms to eat, family disagreements to squabble over and tragedies to overcome. Mating season brings competition for females, as the days grow shorter and colder in a rush toward winter. But with their now confident leader to guide them and their families to shelter and care for them, this troop of snow monkeys is ready to face the world.

Snow Monkeys (2014) Reviews

  • Not as interesting as I'd hoped.

    Everybody must love snow monkeys. After all, they are adorable and I can't think of any animal other than people that love hot tubbing as much as these adorable primates. So, when I saw this episode of "Nature" available through Netflix, I had to watch. Unfortunately, apart from the lovely voice of Liam Neeson and some nice footage of the animals, I really didn't feel that I learned a lot about the animals or their impact on Japanese culture. Instead, the narration anthropomorphizes the creatures a bit by giving them cute names and is too prosaic. It also shows the creatures playing, fighting and mating but not a lot more. Mildly interesting but not at all a film to fill you with delight concerning the creatures or teaching you all that much about them. Passable entertainment.
