'Queen of the Sun" is a beautiful nature film, with gorgeous, multicolored shots of bees and flowers. It also is a well-made documentary about the troubles of the honeybee.

What it is doing, and beautifully, is making a sunny and optimistic case for why the world is worth saving, via gorgeous imagery and poetic appreciations of the bees themselves.

Queen of the Sun optimistically counters with a panoply of ravishing shots featuring harmonious interaction between bees and impossibly colorful flowers, even as it plays up "the miracle of nature" angle a tad too heavily.
