    "[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
