reveals the true magic of temperate zone forests!
23 June 2009 | by (Algeria) – See all my reviews

The new school of doing natural documentaries that has evolved after BBC's "blue planet" and "planet earth" is clearly visible here. The stunning slow-motions and the even more impressive time-lapse sequences of flowering plants and growing mushrooms together with the camera turning around the objects, has now been brought to sheer perfection. Also the sound effects fit really well to what is happening on the screen, sometimes suspenseful sometimes funny. Never before a documentary of central European mixed forests has revealed more of the magic that lies within it, than this one right here. It is on par with BBC and would even fit the big screen. Aside from the technical perspective there are also really interesting stories unfolded that I - as a avid nature doc viewer - have never seen before like the bumblebee that dispelled the brown vole out of it's little den to establish a colony, or the strategy of the arum to take little flies as hostages in order to pollinate them and subsequently harshen the inner surface to enable them to set free again and to pollinate other arums in turn.

Probably the most spectacular images are from the lightnings at night that emblaze the steamy dark forests and the circulations of the stars over the treetops in time lapse.

All in all this is probably one of the best nature documentaries that has not been created by BBC, aside from "wild Russia" which is also very recommendable.

Chapeau!
