The classic story of one otter's life in the English countryside.

TARKA THE OTTER, based on the Henry Williamson book, is the classic story of one otter's life in the English countryside. A female otter is delighted when she gives birth to a son, Tarka. She lovingly protects him from danger, which results in her having to confront Deadlock, the evil leader of a pack of bloodthirsty hounds. Although she saves Tarka, she is killed, and Tarka, still a cub, sets off to fend for himself. Times are hard but Tarka eventually falls in love and raises a family. Eventually he is forced into a confrontation with the dreaded Dreadlock, in a tragic battle for the right to live. With narration by Peter Ustinov and a screenplay by the naturalist and author Gerald Durrell Tarka the Otter is a British film classic. While a family film, it is a realistic portrayal of the countryside, and as such contains some scenes that young children and animal lovers may find upsetting.
