The planet of the apes

22 Aug

I saw this movie last Sunday. I advise you to go to see it, if possible with a young nephew or the youngest of your children (it will be a good pretext in front of the sarcastic irony in the eyes of your wife). Apes are very realistic. The subject is not so science fiction or genetic as you should believe but far more about ethology which is the science of species behaviour (including human specie) in their own environment. It’s also the science of behavioural interaction between species (in that case between apes and humans). If you love pets like I do (specially dogs) you will very appreciate the scenario and the expressions of the hero whose name is Cesar. You should not stay indifferent neither about he’s veterinarian (well shaped, with bright dark eyes, but this is no more ethology here).You surely have a little thought for Charlton Heston you surely saw when you where yourself a teenager (remember the first version of 1968). For my self at that time it was one of my first movies. One last advice: don’t stand up before the very end, even after the names of actors appear on the screen: then you’ll see good images of a lethal for human pandemic flu widespread (of course apes are resistant to the virus). The index case is the horrible airline pilot, next door neighbour of cesar’s house.

    You’ll enjoy this movie, I have only good recalls of it. But when I saw it I imagined my self standing on the place of the apes instead of the humans!
    Congratulation for your movie’s blog (partly written in French!!)
