Microcosmos: a brief movie review

Microcosmos – a 1996 film by Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou – is probably my favourite nature documentary. Check out the trailer on YouTube to see why. It’s not an “educational” film. There is no David Attenborough telling the viewer what’s going on (“pour aborder ce monde, on doit savoir faire silence et écouter ses murmuresto observe this world, we must fall silent now, and listen to its murmurs”). Instead, this film offers simple observation of nature as it is, aided by some truly magical macro photography. A classic!
