More than Honey is More than Good
11 June 2013 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

Today at work I was bombarded by texts from my best friend about the movie More than Honey. She's pre-vet and an animal activist in her free time, so the movies she watches normally alert me to a new threat to the animals in our eco-system. Half-way through her review I told her to save her thoughts till I got off work and we could go see it.

So after work we hurried down to the Cable Car Cinema to watch this German film about bees. By the end I was impressed and intrigued. More than Honey took a look at the diminishing bee population and the causes behind what seems to be the beginning of the end for this species. The movie also shows the effect the lack of bees is having on our environment and the worldwide agriculture industry. Drawing the audience in from the beginning with a quote from Einstein stating that if all the bees were to die off humans would be the next to go. From that moment you are sucked into the movie if not for your interest in bees but for your interest in survival. It was amazing to see how these insects play such a crucial role in our ecosystem.

Along with being very informative the creators of More Than Honey do a great job utilizing master-level cinematography to tell their story. The skills the director and camera men displayed in this movie are outstanding. Even if nature documentaries aren't your thing the artistry displayed in the filming is enough to keep you intrigued.
