This movie was shot over a period of several years and shows the amazing world under water. There's no comment, no plot, just images edited by Leni Riefenstahl and music by Georgio Moroder. Almost every single shot gives a different answer to the question "how can life on earth look like?".
I watched this film on TV, after a very busy day. I felt perfectly relaxed and amazed afterwards.
It's even more amazing that this project was developed by a woman who is almost 100 years old!
There's just one thing I'd like to criticize: The film is too short by just 45 minutes - there were a lot of creatures that I would have liked to watch a little longer.
Apart from this, I rate this one 10 out of 10.
