REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., July 12, 2000
The film follows the work of dolphin researcher Kathleen Dudzenski and her fellow scientists in the beautiful waters off the Bahamas and Argentina. Produced in association with the National Wildlife Foundation, the film is loaded with information about these smart, fascinating animals. Dudzenski's research focuses on dolphin communication modes. Sting, who wrote a new song for the film ("I Need You Like This Hole in My Head"), provides the music. But the most intriguing part of this giant-format documentary is the gorgeous underwater photography that captures what can only be described as water ballets between humans and dolphins as they swim together.
