Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this Werner Herzog-directed 3-D documentary about 30,000-year-old cave drawings is rated G, it's generally aimed at a grown-up audience. Younger viewers may be fascinated by some parts and bored by others, though the gorgeous 3-D cinematography may help with short attention spans. Like Herzog's Encounters at the End of the World, the movie has very little iffy content: There's a brief demonstration of primitive weapons and a discussion of hunting animals, and one of the cave drawings depicts a naked woman, though the image is hard to make out.

Sexual Content

One of the cave drawings depicts a naked woman, though it's difficult to see (part of the drawing is out of camera range).

Violence

One interviewee demonstrates the use of primitive weapons and talks about hunting and killing animals.

Language

Social Behavior

No specific messages here, but it's fascinating to consider the lives of people who lived more than 30,000 years ago; it puts our human existence into proper perspective and reminds us that many of the things that concern us today are rather small in the grand scheme.

Consumerism
