it's really fascinating. review of the dvd release
Fascinating Nature, by Gogol Lobmayr, music Michael Hofmann de Boer
Delightful surprise for the senses! And a dvd transfer on measure. The disc has an interactive menu with the names of the places but they also appear during the film. Each chapter is a visual poem, a sensitive essay on the beauty of nature. I have several top documentary titles on dvd, this one is one of my favorites. Of course that doesn't tell you anything but maybe this will: I'm a docu director myself, love nature and am pretty critical about films. I only put it on the same pedestal with Baraka, Yosemite-the seasons and Coral Sea Dreaming (in terms of dvd titles). Wonderful music in stereo surround. I think it was badly marketed, I came upon this title just by chance. Available in Europe but I think it's zone free (can't tell, since my dvd player reads both 1 & 2). On the box no zone indication.
Other: 93 mins, PAL, format 1:1,85.
