Audience Reviews for More Than Honey

  • Oct 18, 2013
    This Swiss documentary directed by Markus Imhoof about honeybee colonies in California, Switzerland, China and Australia was the Swiss entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards. After watching it I was so impressed by the visuals that it could be on the top if only visuals were to be counted for rating. It was very interesting documentary, and sometimes neutral view at honeybees and the way they are kept and cultivated across the world. I had a chance to see how in Austria, an elderly man keeps them the way his forebears did; in Germany they are rigorously studied by scientists; in the US their commercial possibilities are savoured destroying the essence of keeping them in the first place and in China they are worked harder than ever - if you can find any!

We could even hear answers on the perennially fascinating question of whether bees are effectively buzzing cells in super-organisms... great thoughts about where are societies are heading... but never heard even a suggestion for a solution of the problem: why are the bees disappearing and what to do about it. Question was repeated few times, but answer was never given!

Fascinating, well directed, perfectly edited, brings us the mystery and the beauty of the bees .
