I just checked out the Wikipedia article (I only knew
the book, not the movie) and have to note:
* The flick is about 25 years old
* It seems that the "australopithecines" were actually
intended to be _Homo heidelbergensis_

Considering this, its flaws seem generally due to the
progress of science in the last quarter-century rather
than due to the filmmakers taking artistic license.
And it adds another one to my must-watch list. Getting
the DVD would seem to be worthwhile, as Annaud has a
bit to comment on what he would change in the light of
current science.
