Dian Fossey's true life story

Updated on May 8, 2015

Dian Fossey

As I was looking for something special about today and yesterday on the internet, I've learned that Dian Fossey's birthday was January 16, 1932 (that was yesterday in our local time). And as I reading it I just remembered a movie stared by Sigourney Weaver, as Dian Fossey, that I've watched back when I was 10 years old only ( today I'm 32, a long time ago isn't?), upon realizing it, I just have the idea of sharing this movie to all out there that might be interested watching it again or still not yet, this is the "Gorillas in The Mist".

Back then when I first saw it, I cried so much for what happened on those precious primate. The story started at mountains, while Dian studying behavior of the gorilla how they have leave and maintain their group. She even studied the behavior on how they communicate for just a simple gesture, Dian was so amazed how this animals can possibly give love in simple way yet gave a thousand meaning. She learned that every group of this primate has a leader, that she focused to study, on how it behave just to protect his family. Then this specific male gorilla has been also become a friend to Dian, and shared unforgettable simple moments on the mountains.

However, the conflict arrived when Poachers entered and start capturing and slaying those primate without any mercy just to sell it skin, arms and head. And that made Dian furious and fight for what she already loved and cherish, she considers those Gorillas as her own family too. Then the struggle of the story started on how she will fight for those animal out there, and she will not stop until poaching will be eradicate.

At the end of the story, Dian was murdered of unseen assailant and that was make this film sad, BUT its a truth that we all know that she was brave enough to fight until death just for what she love. Also, at the pre-credit sequence it was seen that her action for fighting the eradication of pouching has been successful and was paid greatfully because as of today, as they said, that the gorillas has been under safe protection against those unmerciful Poachers.

Finally, I am happy that I have read and stumbled some article about Dian Fossey and because of that I also reminisced my young days that loved watching movies like this.

      Great review about a brave woman who was ahead of her time. I was impressed that Ms. Weaver was actually with the gorillas in the movie, not added in later by CGI.

      Thanks for your review about an important part of saving our animals from poachers. These animals hurt nobody, and yet they were murdered by the lowest of the low for money! Dian Fossey was a courageous woman who not only talked the talk, but walked the walk in trying to save the Great Apes.
