  • Stefan Drees's rating of the film The Meerkats

    The camera work and the pictures are excellent. But I can't stand the anthropomorphism of this movie: treating every action of the animals from a human point of view. The narrator part is horrible, and also is the music takes part in this strategy: a needless kind of emotionalization to make the Meerkats more human, charged with a lot of musical clichées (starting with its pseudo-african exotism).
