Back in the '50's, some brilliant film maker invented the 3D movie experience.
Audiences donned special glasses and were brought into the film as if they were part of the action.
Last night, for the first time in our lives, Tom and I went to see one of these movies.
We were both surprised to find out this little known fact about each other after 12 years!
With our ticket we were given the updated version of the 'special' specks'...
I like how it says "real 3D"! (as opposed to fake 3D).
The film was in a word
"The Cave of Forgotten Dreams" is the latest by Werner Herzog.
You may know him from such films as "Grizzly Man" or my favorite "Fitzcarraldo".
He is an incredible film maker and has such an interesting way of telling a story.
"Cave of Forgotten Dreams" is a documentary about the cave paintings inside
a lost place called Chauvet in Southern France.
32,000 years ago people went far into these limestone cliffs and began to tell
a story of great animals that once roamed these lands.
This cave is so fragile and an important archaeology and geological marvel
that it is locked up and guarded form the public.
Werner Herzog and his film crew were granted permission to film in
these caves for a very short time.
It is an exclusive look into a world of stories of which we will never
know the true meaning of.
The detailed artistic impression of the animals on the walls is stunning.
If you love art, history, exploration, or are just in the mood to be 'WOW'd'
you must make a point of seeing this film.
The music is just as haunting and beautiful.
