Very entertaining and lengthy portrayal of the life and times of a small group of people who capture animals for zoos. This particular "season" gets off to a rough start. One member of the staff becomes seriously injured by a rhino and a nosy woman photographer tags along, who only would get in the way. The excellent cast is marvelous and the wonderful music is a plus. This movie is good despite the fact that it supports little plot.
