Amid many haphazard details and much talk of obsession, the lush work by cinematographer Mark Ellam is something of a guide, sensuous and outstanding, his macro lens showing the very female wonder of fruit.

Chang examines the historical and spiritual significance of fruit and environmental concerns that affect sustainable crops...the personalities that emerge are fascinating.

Hearing the personalities describe the transcendent tastes of different fruits has me wanting to hop the next plane to Hawaii just to taste a water apple.

Not only very interesting but also incredibly beautiful ... it's a fun documentary, and that's a treat almost as rare as some of the exotic fruit it showcases.

More of a buffet spread than a single plate. But every morsel is worth a taste.

The Fruit Hunters engages and educates in a way that is almost as rich as the miraculous bounty which forms its subject.
