Based on the true story of young anthropologist Dian Fossey who travels to the Africian mountains to study the rare gorillas. In this incredible paradise which she describes as being "as close to God as you can get", her interest in the gorillas turn to passion and finally obession. Not even her lover, photographer Bob Campbell can tear her away or stop her from risking her life to protect the gorillas from poachers and animal traders. Desperate to save her "family" from extinction, Fossey searches for justice, but in the end settles for revenge. You may applaud what she does. Or you may condemn it. But you will never forget the passion that turned her into a legend.
Sigourney Weaver stars as Dian Fossey. This movie moves me to tears every time I watch it. It is a great movie about mankind and it also shows cruelity of mankind.
I just love this movie and would recommend it to any one that hasn't had a chance to see it yet.
