Microcosmos product reviews

15 years of research. 2 years of equipment design. 3 years of filming. 1 film to restore your sense of wonder.

A feature documentary covering a day in the life of the bug universe, Microcosmos is an entertaining, visually stunning treat.

Microcosmos chronicles one day in the lives of the many insects living in a French meadow. Extraordinary technology brings us up close to these tiny creatures, presenting them as larger-than-life characters whose quirks, pastimes and relationships are never less than riveting.

A pair of stag beetles dual like titans...
A magnificent army of worker ants race to stock their larder while avoiding a predatory pheasant...
While nearby a catapillar transforms into a butterfly in spectacullar fashion. With its tiny cast of thousands, Microcosmos leaves no doubt that "Mother Nature remains the greatest special effects wizard of all" (New York Times).

Narrated by Kirstin Scott Thomas (The English Patient)

Stunning. Absolutely stunning.

I wish I could leave it at that. It is all you really need to know about the film. The description on the box undersells the reality of what one is presented with.
Picture a BBC wild-life documentary, without Sir David. Add a gentle musical score that ties in fantastically with the action on the screen. A little story, excellent insect choreography and you may just have a little insight what you will be presented with.
The cinematography is excellent; there is simply nothing in its class to compare it with.

All this in a small field in France.

Well worth watching, and despite sounding a little cliched now, it really is a stunning addition to any DVD collection - more so if you are a natural history buff.
