"[3 ½ STARS] The most delightful twin bill in town!”
– Jay Carr, amNY

“An international cast of curious creatures in their native habitats stars in this charming Gallic duo of featurettes.”
– Jessica Winter, Village Voice

“What emerges is less the celebration of an institution than a picture of man’s relationship to nature that is every bit as beguiling as a Rousseau.”
– Nathan Lee, New York Times

“Surrealistically thrilling! Fascinates!”
– Jay Carr, amNY

“Philibert is most enamored of the museum’s vast collection of unheimlich mammalian heads and grants them many a haunting close-up”
– Jessica Winter, Village Voice

“Just imagine a doc about animals with neither a ponderous voiceover nor an attention-grabbing host.

Or live animals, for that matter. How refreshing! Dryly Funny!”
– Elisabeth Vincentelli, Time Out NY

“Delightful… There's a strange primal melancholy to this frozen kingdom that Philibert both respects and finds wryly amusing, especially when specimens are being poked, painted and spruced by human hands.”
— Dennis Harvey, Variety

“An incisive testimony of the human desire, or compulsion, to preserve and document.

Beware: a trip to the local natural history museum may never be quite the same.”

— San Francisco International Film Festival 1995
