Critic Reviews for Microcosmos
A movie with a quirky vision.
Breathtaking docu zooms in on insect life in vivid color.
Both informative and entertaining, French docu doesn't presume any previous knowledge of or interest in the subject, finding the right tone (serio and also slyly humorous) to introduce in detail a previously unrecorded but fascinating universe.
Audience Reviews for Microcosmos
A very straight forward, beautiful piece about the world of the insect, and how big their world is, though we view it as so very small. Directors Claude Nuridsany and Marie Perennou got up close and personal with the world of the ant colony, ladybug, dung beetle, and dragonfly. Only briefly narrated and accompanied by a great soundtrack of smooth classical music, this film only tries to show how insects view the world and the processes of said world. It drags at times, but it is truly engrossing if you see the world with a philosophical view or just want to know more about the world around you. It's short, sweet, and educational if you don't know much about insects or anything nature related.
As exhilarating as anything ever seen on Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom and it's all taking place right in your own back yard.
Very entertaining look at the insect world. Call it March of the Praying Mantises. Little conversation. Just observation. It works nonetheless.
