The World About Us (1967 - 1987): La Vie en Mouvement  (1971)

Also known as: Animals in Action

This film from France might have been called 'the running, jumping, and anything-but-standing-still film', for it is all about animal movement.

The animal world has an infinite variety of methods of locomotion, which are often spectacular, ingenious and beautiful, and sometimes just odd: from the mysterious creeping of an amoeba to graceful leap of an impala.
