One day on Earth proves too little and too much for One Day on Earth.

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.
