  • 一只幸运的大象剧情简介
      大象结束了马术团里的生活又该去哪里?马戏团大卫·巴尔丁老板收养孤儿小象Flora十六年了,这只非洲小象已经成长为他家庭的一部分并且成为他马戏团表演中的明星。随着Flora逐渐接近成年,大卫意识到Flora其实是不喜欢表演。最终,大卫必须面对事实:马戏团并不是合适Flora的地方,她需要与其他大象在一起。但是让Flora退休这条路却是曲折的,有很多意想不到的情况发生。这只幸运的大象经过十年的人工饲养虽然丧失了部分野外生存的能力,但是却从未失去心底对于微妙爱情的渴望。
      Ten years in the making, ONE LUCKY ELEPHANT follows the poignant journey of circus producer David Balding as he tries to find a nurturing and permanent home for Flora, the 18-year-old African elephant that he rescued as an infant, raised as his "daughter" and made the star of his circus. David's love for Flora is put to the ultimate test when he realizes he made a terrible mistake keeping her as a solo elephant, and decides to retire her from the circus after 17 years of performing. Knowing Flora will outlive him, and with his health and finances becoming an issue, David sets off on a quest to find a home for Flora can live freely with other elephants. This complicated task begins with Flora's final circus performance in St. Louis and takes us on an emotional trek across America, then to Africa and back. We follow David's journey as he discovers just how difficult...
      Where does an elephant go after a life in the circus?
      Sixteen years have passed since circus producer David Balding adopted Flora, the orphaned baby African elephant he lovingly raised as part of his family and made the star of his show. As Flora approaches adulthood, he realizes that she is not happy performing. Ultimately, David must face the difficult truth that the circus is no place for Flora. She needs to be with other elephants.
      The road to Floras retirement, however, is a difficult and emotional journey which tests their bond in unexpected ways. Ten years in the making, One Lucky Elephant explores the consequences of keeping wild animals in captivity, while never losing sight of the delicate love story at its heart.

    一只幸运的大象评论、影评、观后感
    蓝调共和  2011-11-21
    在休斯敦美术馆看的,两位制片人也来了,其中一位是休斯敦人。导演为这部电影花了10年的时间。每次看到这种人与动物友情的电影,都会泪水涟涟。最后,很遗憾大象没有回到它的家乡,而David也没有机会经常见她。
