– Now, barefoot, Barack Obama is praising the wonders of nature
“Our Great National Parks” is beautifully produced and manages the balance between fun and horror.
The word “career” is certainly too small for what Michelle and Barack Obama do during the day as they are no longer the first couple. Since they both no longer manage the White House rose garden, but return to their private lives. If you understand correctly – this is just the latest news – the Obamas have just left Spotify because the reach of the giant platform is not enough for them.
What’s also amazing about this world couple’s super career is that you can hardly ever be jealous of them.
The Obamas are collecting millions on every corner for another book or podcast, they are elitists far beyond the confines of their own private beach. But somehow they always get the curve, Barack Obama is again particularly impressive in his latest project, a five-part wildlife park documentary for Netflix.
The entire American Internet has exploded because of the way Obama has titled these films.
At the beginning of this documentary, Obama walks barefoot along the beach and lulls you to the stories of his life. Shortly thereafter, the previously most powerful man in the world claims that we are not all “powerless” in the fight against climate change and environmental destruction. You want to get angry for a moment and bark at him – you can now a?
But it is true that Obama protected 220 million acres of US land through the Antiquities Act during his tenure, more than any other president before him. It is also true that Obama could now use his facial recognition and his voice for other things besides providing information about Japanese moss rugs and cedars on Internet pay-TV.
Speaking of voice. Pretty much the entire American Internet has melted this week due to the blanket-like way Obama captions these films, precisely and with the same frugality that is only known from nature documentaries and perhaps selected fringe sports commentaries. . When a lemur monkey flies around between a dizzyingly high sharp stone in a mix of parkour and spontaneous spidermanism, Obama says only this from the start: “A single misstep could prove fatal.” It doesn’t get any better than that.
Obama isn’t the only reason this documentary becomes a show.
With that famous voice, travel from western Patagonia to Yellowstone Park and Cahills Crossing in Australia’s Northern Territory, where some mullet’s exhilarating river journey ends abruptly and brutally in the thundering snap mouth of a local crocodile.
Obama is not the only reason this becomes a spectacle that goes beyond the usual measure of nature documentaries.
It becomes so thanks to the effort that went into making the films, the narrative power of the direction and the balance between fun and horror. A crew, which was also reinforced with on-site specialists, managed to bring a lot of material into over 1500 days of shooting, including some extremely rare. And all of this is mixed, where the greatest beauty of this land is manifested – without neglecting the threat posed by man and climate change caused by man.
The narrative force grows from the combination of Barack Obama’s vocal miracle with the selection of his “protagonists”. In a light summer jersey and with a very light joke dad attitude, he becomes a good-natured and good-humored reserved and tour guide in the national parks of the world.
When Obama, after a short pause, greets a sifaka from the ceiling, “The Shifaka of the Ceiling,” it still sounds as if he had uttered the name of a friendly head of state in a state of the nation speech. When hippos surf in salt water because they feel lighter due to the increased density, or when Obama happily starts giving a white-throated sloth lecture, you want to immediately sign up for a wildlife sponsorship.
“Our Beautiful National Parks” is on Netflix.
