Some friendships are wilder than others
An orphaned cheetah becomes the best friend and pet of a young boy living in South Africa.
Duma is a great entertaining film. Magnificent filming-locations. Film got a real look to offer to audience; an affection between animals and humans.
Understandable why Warner Brothers were reluctant to release this wide theatrically. I’ve seen worse family films on the screen, but it's the weak human element of this flick that weighs it down. The photography, the animals, directing, all fine. The script is at moments terrible, however. Watching a cheetah on screen is something new. African landscapes are well captured. Strange, lemur-like creature (that I’m sure was inspiration for the lemurs in Madagascar) just hilarious. Thankfully short, though.
Primero con Ellen ahora con Luba.
Just a magnificent adventure that strikes a lot of great notes and plays to the strengths of it's genre. It may be a little bit kid oriented but even adults should find this film enjoyable.
In the essence of "Huckleberry Finn", "Duma" is one boy's endearing quest to return his pet cheetah to the wilds of northern Africa and succeeds in being one of the better tales of friendship in recent years.
A pretty melancholy tale of a boy and a cheetah. I love cheetahs, so it was fun to watch.
The mother cheetah dies, a boy and his dad find the cub and name it Duma. The dad dies and the boy and his mom have to move into town. Of course the cheetah gets out and almost shot before the game reserve people come to take him away. So, the boy leaves his already grief-stricken mother to take the cheetah back to the wild. He almost dies a couple times, meets a man that he's not sure he can trust (a tame cheetah is worth a lot of money), the man almost dies, but, pretty soon... well, I don't want to give away the ending!
Watched this with my son who happens to share a name with the protagonist and his love of cheetahs. Nicely-made film with some great nature footage and a good sense of adventure. I don't know that there's much bad I can say about it but nothing that put it over the top for me.
Just another look to my fabulous movie! Its better than I remembered!!
Pretty much what the title suggests -- films that have impressive cinematography. I'm bound to miss a lot, so suggestions…
