Thursday - The New Wilderness, a documentary

Although The Netherlands are one of the most densely populated countries in the world, there's an area in the East called Oostvardersplassen where nature is still wild, with horses, foxes, deers and geese roaming freely in the beautiful scenery.

A film crew has spent 2 years in the area, documenting the passing of seasons and the circle of life:  the result of their effort is now in all Dutch cinemas.

The commentary is in Dutch with (in some cinemas) English subtitles: according to some Dutch mother-tongues, who got used to the BBC and Sir David Attenborough's informed (and informal) soft spokeness, the commentary sounds a bit forced and verbose, however the images and editing are definitely worth the trip to the bioscoop.
