I was introduced to this movie a couple of years after it came out. I have not since watched a movie that was so beautiful and fascinating as Microcosmos.
This movie not only brings you really close to nature, but it is lit and shot so beautifully that I’m still glued to the screen every time I watch it. if you love nature and photography, especially macro photography, and you missed this one somehow, do yourself a favour, get this disk and watch it, this is the real “A bug’s life“.
It’s a french film and though there’s not much dialog in it, you can choose the english sound track from the menu.
After watching “Exit Through the Gift Shop”, I gained respect to the fact that even the fringe, in a time of internet and social networking, can get mainstream very fast, maybe too fast. surprising, right? it can find a great audience if it’s loud and daring enough. It is aggressive marketing with no limitations, and sometimes it even have some qualities other than sheer size. whether you are a fan of street art or not, you’ll be able to find a support to your cause, in this original documentary, that has an unlikely punk “cinderella story” underlay. no kidding. I enjoyed it very much.
