There is no substitute for the patient skill required to train, or man, a hawk. The falconer must show consummate kindness, rewarding the bird with food and gently proving himself an impassive and humble hunting partner, rather than an enemy. Gradually, the falconer learns to understand the hawk's moods, to predict its movements and reactions, to understand the intimate interaction between predator and prey. Without strong bonds of habit, hunger and partnership, the bird will refuse to return to captivity. The falconer cannot create these bonds without feeling them. To train a bird, then, is also to train oneself-to sharpen the senses and to become, as White wrote, "half bird." In effect, to touch the wild.

Didn't really care about the weak plot and tropes. Good visuals and you'll probably enjoy it if you like Documentary.

This was one of those rare movies that kept my attention. The scenes where amazing, acting was spot on. Paul Manning was the best thing about this film! I'd get it 11 stars if I could.
