A typical British nature documentary, which is to say, a very good film, and one that mostly balances the "awwws" with the awesome.

Another gorgeously shot document of nature's majesty, this one focusing on the life cycle-and interconnectedness-of all living creatures.

A well structured montage of wall-to-wall splendor, 'One Life' is the culmination of years of patient filming that deserves to be seen in all its glory - on the big screen.
