A visually gorgeous, at times astonishing screen experience.
Nature films don't come any more spectacular than the BBC's "One Life."
A typical British nature documentary, which is to say, a very good film, and one that mostly balances the "awwws" with the awesome.
A typically eye-catching, years-in-the-making chronicle of animal life that is tainted by the urge to anthropomorphize.
Another gorgeously shot document of nature's majesty, this one focusing on the life cycle-and interconnectedness-of all living creatures.
What's before our eyes suggests we share the planet with some amazingly strange beings.
Even if we can understand that the future of our planet depends on a multi-species sharing economy, the film doesn't always match up what it says with what it shows.
As much as Daniel Craig's narration can feel tacked-on, it's really secondary to the film's expert camerawork.
The camera work on this nature documentary is so staggering that it really is worth seeing on a very big screen.
Beautifully shot and featuring some genuinely astonishing footage, this is a thoroughly entertaining documentary that delivers a powerful message.
Shot with dazzling technical prowess.
A technically brilliant wildlife documentary from BBC Earth Film, let down by its gushy, absurdly pro-family script.
A little wonder of a nature documentary, beautifully filmed and composed. Following a large variety of animals, some well known, some very obscure, through different stages of life: from the care for the offspring to the struggle for food or the search for mates. While we only get short glimpses into their respective lives, what we see and learn still fills us with a sense of wonder, leaving us in awe of the beauty of nature. Thankfully, the narration is limited to the very basic information, never gets preachy or too lyrical. Very well done. Impressive and memorable.
