Is it our future ?!

Plastic Planet is a documentary, directed by Werner Boote. This is the « story » of a man who tries to gather studies about plastic effects (on human health) for industries take the dangerous substances out of it. This movie is interesting; we realize that plastic is everywhere and unsafe for human health, but some thing are said several times and some scenes are not very attractive, for example the one with parts of human corpses conserved to do some art. Then, there are some boring parts, for instance when he (Werner Boote) walks and he's looking for the manager of plastic industry. Actually, this movie is interesting but a little bit boring. In my opinion, if you want to appreciate the film : watch it in several times when you're calm and when you want to learn about plastic. Finally, my opinion is mixed. As far I'm concerned, I've found it attractive despite the long and boring parts. My advice is to watch it and judge by yourself ... so, watch it and try to enjoy !
