Crew
Directed by Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou


One of the most successful nature documentaries of all time, Microcosmos (1996) captures the fun and adventure of a spectacular hidden universe revealed in a breathtaking, close-up view unlike anything you’ve ever seen! Your family will marvel at a pair of stag beetles dueling like titans. The kids will stare bug-eyed as a magnificent army of worker ants race to stock their larder ... while trying to avoid becoming a feisty pheasant’s dinner. And you’ll have a front row seat to witness an amazing transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, the remarkable birth of a mosquito, and several other minute miracles of life. With its tiny cast of thousands, Microcosmos leaves no doubt that “Mother Nature remains the greatest special effects wizard of all” (New York Times).

Reviews

“Mother Nature remains the greatest special effects wizard of all”

"AN AMAZING FILM that allows us to peer deeply into the insect world"

"A miraculous you-are-there close-up of the insect kindgom, a world of such teeming beauty and sophistication it suggests a sci-fi zooscape designed by Dr. Seuss"

"Microcosmos" on Blu-Ray knocks it out of the park in the visual department... Microcosmos" is a visually stunning and captivating glimpse into the insect world. A fine addition to any collection. Highly Recommended."
