A very good movie !, 4 May 2012
Author: lea-valmy from France

"Plastic planet" is a documentary which was produced by Werner Boote. Since the death of his grand-father who worked in the industry of plastic, Mr. Boote wanted to learn more about plastic. So he decided to cross 14 countries to have answers to his questions. This documentary talked about the making of plastic and it reveals if there is a lot of plastic on the Earth and what the consequences of the plastic on the human health and on the planet are. Firstly, I found that this documentary was very interesting. It learned many things about plastic and its production. But I disagree with Werner Boote who only showed the defects of plastic, and not the qualities enough. Moreover, there are sequences which didn't need do be seen because there shocking and these sequences don't teach anything about plastic. However, there are many interviews which are very interesting, the interviews with the scientists or with the boss of a big business in the industry of plastic which talked a lot about it. But many persons don't want to answer the questions. To conclude, I found this film very interesting and it teach many things about plastic and its dangers. And to finish, I was too afraid when the man said « With the quantity of plastic produced since the start of plastic age, we can wrap the planet six times over. » You have to see this film if you are interested about your future and the future of your children.
