The human species, having succumbed to a self-centered worldview, has denied animals of any capacity for emotion, consciousness or will. A closer glance, though, at a loveable sow (the titular Gunda), two ingenious cows, and a scene-stealing one-legged chicken is all it takes for you to recalibrate your moral approach to animals. A heartwarming documentary that knocks down any suspicion of human uniqueness, reminding us to cherish the inherent value of every life on our planet.
