Beautiful and really touching.
Forget the Disney movie, the cute little bunnies and skunks and birdies. This is "nature red in tooth and claw" an astonishing, terrifying portrayal of life as prey. Salten had a gift for describing the instincts that govern wild animals: desperate hunger, paralyzing fear, overpowering lust. When Bambi challenges another buck for Faline he doesn't think, he reacts instantly with blinding rage. The scent of Man in the forest drives the animals into a frenzy, yet the domesticated dogs follow and kill for the hunters with a blind pitiless devotion that recalls storm troopers and the Clone army. Man is an otherworldly demon in this universe, wielding random destruction, "the only animal that can kill from a distance".
