Movie Info

MORE THAN HONEY, a new documentary by the Swiss filmmaker Marcus Imhoof, is looking into the fascinating world of bees, showing small family beekeepers (including the beekeeper of ERSTE Foundation beehive, Heidrun Singer) and industrialized honey farms. MORE THAN HONEY is a film on the relationship between mankind and honeybees, about nature and about our future. Honeybees show us that stability is just as unhealthy as unlimited growth, that crises and disasters are triggering evolution and that salvation sometimes comes from a completely unexpected direction.

Summer's blitz of apocalypse movies has nothing on this bee doc.

Oblique narrative aside, you can't beat the film's eye-popping visuals.

What's really frightening about Honey isn't what a hive of angry bees might do to us, but what we've done to them.

[Markus] Imhoof makes bees more important than they have previously seemed.

Imhoof's film is remarkable in its close-up photography. The bees loom large, like creatures from some mutant planet; dangle together in a delicate chain; and fill the air, floating like unusually vivid dust specks.

Audience Reviews for More Than Honey

For some reason I couldn't completely get into this documentary. It was interesting, but I had a lot of unanswered questions when it was over.

A very beautiful documentary film about the bee keeping trade that offers some amazing insights to the business, the world health of bees, and the people who keep them. Also some astonishing truths are presented about the true benefits of Africanized "Killer" bees. Recommended! Currently streaming on Netflix.

Beautiful, informative, wise. Only negative: in our cgi world, documentaries lose some of their validity. Is it real, or is it fake?
