Dolphins are characters in the movie The Day of the Dolphin. A scientist teaches dolphins to speak in a kind of human language, and also understand certain words. He plays with them, cares them like his own children. But, some others like the military have plans to kidnap the dolphins and use them as a kind of secret weapon. The difficult theme of speaking dolphins is picturized convincingly. The end of the film was moving. The scientist decides to release the dolphins back to the sea, but they stick to him, saying that "Pha loves Ba". Finally the scientist says that "All men bad, don't speak to men", and the dolphins hesitatingly move away, still crying. The director (Mike Nichols) makes sure that this scene doesn't become a kind of melodrama. I felt it was a unique type of movie, and I liked it.
