VERY GOOD 1988 film about Dian Fossey and her work protecting African gorillas, some of which she became rather familiar with/to.
Lots of fine cinematography, good romantic flavor - lots of fun cinema with those gorillas.

This film is truly amazing because it shows that that the love of gorillas brings about an increase of their population in Africa.

Director Michael Apted scores a winner with "Gorillas in the Mist". He is famous for such films as "Coal Miners Daughter" and "Gorky Park", but this may be his best work. The cinematography of the African jungle gorilla's is stunning. Sigourney Weaver is outstanding in a true story of anthropologist Dian Fossey travels to study the gorilla's in their native habitat. "Gorillas in the Mist" is fascinating from beginning to end. A truly fine film for the entire family!
