“I think what’s extremely important is that we realize that archeology today is not a heroic adventure with spades and picks, but high tech scientific work that’s done with incredible detail” – Nicholas Conard

Brief Synopsis – A documentary that takes us on a wonderous journey of discovery within a cave thousands of years old.
My Take on it – I heard about this movie a few months ago and was very interested in seeing it.
When I sat down to watch this, I hoped to see some wonderous cave drawings that were accidently discovered two decades ago in France.
The cave drawings and the story behind the find was interesting to hear and the movie started off excellently.
Unfortunately, I found the way it was all presented to us was done in a very boring fashion.
I felt myself hoping against hope that it would get back to the interesting parts, but it unfortunately never made it back.
Bottom Line – Great idea and premise but it is presented in such a boring fashion that I quickly lost interest despite hoping that it would get more interesting.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Because of near-toxic levels of radon and carbon dioxide, nobody can stay in the cave for more than a few hours per day (From Wikipedia)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
