At first this was childish and self-indulgent. Ok no worries. To be expected. But then, to my horror, the tatooed fella shi*s himself on camera because sure we really needed to show that.

And then shockingly we see a shot of the tatooed fella crouched down **** I pooed myself he says or something to that effect. Then we see the two lovebirds pawing and groping each other.

When one is spiraling downward and hopes for the future look dim, it may seem that there’s no coming back from one’s troubles.

So it was for Harry Turner, a British soldier who was traumatized by his combat experience in Afghanistan, leaving him with severe cases of depression and PTSD that nearly drove him to suicide. He felt that life was no longer worth living, so he packed up his belongings and headed to the Peruvian rainforest, hoping to lose himself there. However, once in the wilderness, he was taken with the beauty of his new environment, landing a job rescuing orphaned wildlife with conservationist/scientist Samantha Zwicker, who eventually became his partner. Harry became particularly passionate about a program to prepare abandoned ocelots for return to the wild, a project that gave him a purpose and a new reason for living. However, despite the satisfaction it gave him, he still struggled with his mental health demons when the challenges of this effort became too great, nearly causing him and his progress to unravel. This intimate look at a complex, troubled individual, what drives him and what nearly destroyed him tugs at the heart strings in many ways, especially in its ample footage of the positively adorable felines and their intuitive bonds with their human mentor. The picture’s gorgeous cinematography and emotive score add much to this film’s heartwarming narrative, though its length is arguably somewhat excessive given the scope of the subject matter and could have easily benefitted from some judicious editing. Nevertheless, directors Trevor Frost and Melissa Lesh have compiled an uplifting, candid chronicle of this inspiring though sometimes-painful story, one that gives hope where it’s absent and provides even the most downtrodden among us with new reasons to carry on.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Este documentário acompanha a vida de um biólogo e sua relação com dois felinos em plena floresta amazônica peruana. Na verdade, ele ainda tem uma amiga como companhia, mas o foco é mesmo na relação entre ele e os filhotes de onça, os quais ele cuida com muita ternura.
O filme inicia de forma muita bela, com uma montagem que nos faz aproximar do lugar paradisíaco que é a floresta e nos faz imergir facilmente. Após mostrar a relação dele com um filhote, o animal morre por acidente e, logo em seguida, outro é substituído. Embora esteja se tratando de um outro felino, o amor que ele recebe do rapaz é o mesmo, e ele aos poucos vai ajudando com a caça e a sobrevivência, treinando para que o animal ganhe aptidões para sobreviver, a ideia é ele treiná-lo até que complete 18 meses e, após isso, devolvê-lo à mata.
Confesso que acompanhar a rotina ficou monótono, teve um susto com um jacaré e mais nada. É bonito, claro, ver a relação dele com os animais, mas esperava algo mais dinâmico, talvez se abortasse um pouco a própria forma do humano sobreviver na floresta, desse uma quebrada no ritmo, mas o filme foca no felino mesmo, e se torna cansativo. Ao menos está muito bem filmado, mesmo nas cenas noturnas.
