Synopsis:
Narrated by Peter Ustinov, this captivating adaptation of Henry Williamson's famous novel is widely regarded as one of the greatest nature-themed films of all time. Only after rejecting several offers from Walt Disney did Williamson find a trusted director in British wildlife filmmaker David Cobham, and 'Tarka the Otter' was released to huge acclaim in 1979. Following the adventures of a male otter as he matures, plays, learns to fend for himself, has pups of his own, hunts and is in turn hunted, the film presents a playful, sometimes poignant but un-sentimentalised portrayal of the natural world and man's often cruel interventions within it.
