Storyline

A guided tour into the invisible world of cells, told through a collage of metaphors. Discusses and portrays the invisible world of cells, how they communicate with each other, work together, reproduce, and die, all to benefit the larger organism of which they are a part. State-of-the-art microcinematography is playfully intercut with parallel images from life at the human scale: a hundred lighted violins, imploding skyscrapers, pieces of film on the cutting room floor. Contains interviews with noted biologists. Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

Whoah, enlightening.
29 May 2002 | by (Oceania) – See all my reviews

I saw this about 1 year ago, and always think about it. This scientific documentary regarding cell death is great because it teaches us the fundamental truths and microscopic details about life. Aside from presenting lots of professors, analyists, and the like, the narrative of the story presents an overall feel that left me in awe at the end. It makes you think. If the whole world saw this, I wonder what people would be talking about...

It's funny how science makes some people disbelieve in God. I don't really know what I believe in, but I left this video thinking... All this science shows us is this: that something spectacular, and beautiful, creates life.... and ends it too.
