Critic Reviews for One Day On Earth
Beguiling as well as meandering, but thought-provoking and frequently gorgeous, it's an interesting nonfiction snapshot that's much cheaper than any similarly exotic itinerary a viewer could put together.
The overall impression is as fleeting as much of the imagery that flashes across the screen.
It all flies by, nothing sinks in, but the cumulative effect is somewhat overwhelming. How could it not be?
The film's 104 minutes ambitiously packs in a huge amount of evocative imagery that well conveys the diversity of life on the planet.
Too often, it is no more than a set of flashcards, with no feel for the images other than to note that it's Andorra or Burkina Faso or Tuvalu we're admiring.
Ultimately, a collage film is only as good as its constituent parts, and, with a few exceptions, the brief snippets from this particular day on earth are far too prosaic to be illuminating.
