Mystery of the ocean's world, beauty and variety of life
9 April 2006 | by (Cieszyn, Poland) – See all my reviews

"So far we have only touched the surface (...) the greatest experience of nature on screen" proclaimed the leaflets advertising the documentary. Since such films on big screen in cinema are a rarity, as a matter of fact, not many people felt encouraged to see DEEP BLUE. Perhaps, we are too much addicted to action films and all fictions possible. In this way, many of us have forgotten that it is also possible to admire real nature on screen. I also must admit that I am not a fan of such documentaries. What usually bores me in them are the number of sophisticated terms provided to the viewer, which makes it all too scientific. Nevertheless, I went to see DEEP BLUE for the sake of images that addressed my curiosity. And I do not regret! It was wonderful throughout. The film is, foremost, a stunning image which pays tribute to the variety of life, mostly the life under the waters.

First of all, it is important to mention that the documentary is not very long and serves a useful purpose not being a too detailed insight into some facts of life in the ocean. Besides, the film is really visually stunning. You see the underwater world as if you were there. All kinds of fishes of various shapes and colors are a feast for the eyes. You see the entire joy and freedom of their lives as well as the necessity to defend themselves from deadly dangers. The atmosphere is great and the "action" is very involving. Moreover, the philharmonic orchestral music in the background makes the experience even more unforgettable. The most impressive moment for me was when the journey to the deep began and the pictures we could see were fewer and fewer due to darkness. How unbelievable it is how much the sunlight provides to the earth. These creatures that have never seen the light look completely different, as if not from this world. Some of them surprised me totally. Yet, they also have the desire to live... There are also other wonderful moments showing life on the ground, particularly the polar bear and penguins. This is filmed with great commitment, indeed.

DEEP BLUE is not a film for everyone. Some people may not find anything special in it. Perhaps, that is why the cinemas in Poland had it for only 10 up to 15 days while other films are being showed for two months or even longer. Yet, I would recommend DEEP BLUE to anyone who can still admire the variety of beauties on "the planet of life" that the earth, not unintentionally, is. But remember to see it on the big screen. The film is foremost an experience of image!
