Best documentation about bees so far
29 June 2014 | by (Riehen, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

More than Honey is a must see for every one. It should be shown in all schools and universities. This documentation contains many information about the secrets of the bees. The danger of their existence is told in a good comprehensive way. Then the shootings with the macro camera are unique what I never saw before. The worldwide research on the greatest continents is well studied and executed. The director created a very interesting movie that was never boring. At the end the audience can imagine itself the cause of the mass death of these wonderful and indispensable insects for our humanity. I hope we all are responsible about the possible consequences of the nature. Final rate: 6.5/10.
