Love Herzog in general but this may be the most boring of documentaries I've seen...

Beautiful cave with pristine art. Really nice to see up close in HD.

The cave art inside Chauvet caves is truly awe-inspiring and watching it in 3D added real gravity to what we are being shown.

However, Herzog is slipping as the documentary itself is mostly tedious. In reaching to build a connection to the world outside the cave he meanders through repetition, at times puts his words in the mouths of those being interviewed. Mostly it sits as filler between moments of wonder, and his final thoughts are fairly muddled.

It art is wholly remarkable, the doco wholly forgetable.
