Solution to Bee Problem Solved., 12 November 2011
Author: jjnoahjames (jjnoahjames@hotmail.com) from United States

Ellen Paige's voice only helps the homeland feeling of farmers trying to bring love to the land which in turn brings food to all of us. The story starts with David Hackenberg an experienced American bee farmer trying to find out why all his bees are dying. From him the movie traces David's Friendly Colony of scientist and fellow farmers and tells us their stories.

Vanishing was thorough and I learned a lot. What I liked most about the movie is that they take you over seas to show that the people in France etc. are fighting the same battle, and it's cool to see so many people from different backgrounds get together for one cause.

This movie was very enjoyable. I didn't expect it to be exciting but I got sucked in. I would have liked to see interviews with the companies involved in this problem, and people pressing them. Some sort of deep emotion like that would have possibly earned this another star.
