Movie Info

From BBC Earth Films, the studio that brought you Earth, comes the long-awaited sequel - Earth: One Amazing Day, an astonishing journey revealing the awesome power of the natural world. Over the course of one single day, we track the sun from the highest mountains to the remotest islands, from exotic jungles to urban jungles. Astounding breakthroughs in filmmaking technology bring you up close and personal with a cast of unforgettable characters; a baby zebra desperate to cross a swollen river, a penguin who heroically undertakes a death-defying daily commute to feed his family, a family of sperm whales who like to snooze vertically and a sloth on the hunt for love. Told with humour, intimacy, emotion and a jaw-dropping sense of cinematic splendour, Earth: One Amazing Day is the enchanting big screen family friendly adventure that spectacularly highlights how every day is filled with more unseen dramas and wonders than you can possibly imagine- until now!

It's breathtaking to watch, although its meditative possibilities are limited thanks to Redford's narration and an overbearing orchestral accompaniment.

Earth: One Amazing Day proves inspirational in its depiction of the wonders of the natural world.

"Earth: One Amazing Day" is kid-friendly, but adults will be equally awed by the animal wonders and how the filmmakers captured them in such exquisite detail.

The Earth might be the film's titular star but the documentary is really about the sun and how that star's waxing and waning energy over 24 hours shapes life down here, from the warmth of morning to the shadows of night.

The film works best as a collection of cleansing images to meditate on - it's a welcome respite from the awfulness of the developed world, though the dangers of climate change and extinction are glossed over by design.

Projected onto a big screen in all of its digital glory, this footage is spectacular. And yet the movie as a whole feels like a missed opportunity to explore how humans also fit in with this cycle of day and night.

Audience Reviews for Earth: One Amazing Day


Amazing film and one of the better documentaries coming out with a sense of fun and wonder. Robert Redford might not have been the correct choice for the narrator but even he can't shadow this wonderful film. The film is family friendly and for those looking for depth, like the Attenborough documentaries will be letdown. The film is beautiful to look at and is a visual splendour from beginning to end. 27/09/2018.
