In the journey’s second part, the spring in the Alps reaches its peak. Alpine wild goats (ibex) and groundhogs play on the mountain slopes, brown frogs cross endless snowfields to reach the mating area. In Germany, wild boars take their newborns out on a walk through the flower frenzy of the orchards, meadows, and forests.
The tour keeps on through the wild river scenery in Poland, to the rugged coasts of the North Atlantic and into the lonesome vastness of the tundra and the taiga. Reindeers and mother bears care for their young; cranes have already arrived here from Spain and performed their graceful wedding dances. While ruffs are putting their gorgeous feathering on display, puffins and seagulls are in hustle and bustle.
Just like in the South, in each region of the North, spring presents itself in a different light: sometimes harsh, sometimes mellow, but always in its spectacular and fascinating beauty.
The two-part film is a thrilling journey that lets us experience a whole continent’s awakening while it joins the spring fever bit by bit.
