A great movie

10 years, 10 months ago at Feb 1 13:51
To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie but, after all these years, it is still one of the most unforgettable movie experiences I ever had. I remember it very well, when it was released in France, there was a huge buzz about the whole thing, it was eventually critically acclaimed and was watched by 3 500 000 viewers. Basically, this movie is just really unique and should be ... read more
View all Microcosmos reviews
A documentary of insect life in meadows and ponds, using incredible close-ups, slow motion, and time-lapse photography. It includes bees collecting nectar, ladybugs eating mites, snails mating, spiders wrapping their catch, a scarab beetle relentlessly pushing its ball of dung uphill, endless lines of caterpillars, an underwater spider creating an air bubble to live in, and a mosquito hatching.

30 From 96: My Favorite Films From 1996 (30 movies items)

"I love watching scientific documentaries. Especially ones about the animal kingdom. Now while most 'em tend to teach through the use of a narrator, Microcosmos achieves this more through the use of special lenses which zoom into the world of insects with groundbreaking clarity. The focus is so sharp in this film, that all the usually unnoticeable tiny details ranging from the spikes on a mantis' claws to the massive looking drops of dew water take on a size and weight as to appear monstrous and"
