Educational, but even better, enjoyable and superbly acted.
20 November 2003 | by jon-252See all my reviews

This is a remarkably enjoyable film. And at the same time educates us about the formative experiences of Charles Darwin. Ian Richardson as Captain Fitzroy is one of the finest performances you will see on the screen, ever.
