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.

Jack Webber at his best! I would certainly recommend this film to anyone and it boasts an excellent soundtrack. Go see the film and go buy the soundtrack. They are too good to be missed.

This is the best looking version of the theatrical release. You also get the standard blu-ray with 3 different versions of the film. You can’t go wrong with this package in my opinion.
