Project Nim ★★★☆☆

Arriving conveniently the same weekend as Rise of the Planet of the Apes (a film with a strong social warning about our inherent desire to advance scientifically with little regard for the natural repercussions) Project Nim successfully amalgamates a mixture of talking head segments, archived footage, still photography and dramatised recreations to retell the tale of Nim Chimpsky, a chimpanzee thrust into a human environment in an elaborate experiment to see if chimpanzees can successfully communicate with humans through sign language.
