I know this was released in cimemas in April in the UK, but it has only just been released in Australia this week (limited release - only showing in 3 cinemas in Sydney). As soon as I read the review of it I had to see it.

I saw this today. Wow, what a journey. 3D did it a great amount of justice, in terms of giving spacial awareness in the cave. The animal drawings in it were magnificient and I was in awe of the detail and scale of them. It makes you wonder what life was like 32,000 years ago and the types of animals in France at that time - lions, rhinos, horses, and bison (like the modern ones in Nth America)and woolly mammoths.

If you have not seen this movie / documentary, you missed a great part of history. The caves are in France and were discovered in the 1990s. The French Ministry of Culture immediately realised the immense significance of the caves and sealed the opening with a steel door, only allowing access to scientists and archeologists at certain times of the year and eventually the film makers for a short period of time. They have constructed steel walways 2 feet wide so that the cave floor cannot be disturbed by people walking anywhere except on the walkway.
