Not a Mariah Carey song
3 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

If you don't get the "noughties" reference, there was a song. Actually there are more than one song referring to Honey, as in spouse or at least girlfriend. But we are talking about actual honey here. And the movie has some devastating blows to deliver. It is also about the bees and the way we are treating them.

A very interesting and intriguing documentary, it shows that sometimes they have more to offer than fiction movies. Not to mention that they should affect us more. Hopefully it will also take away the fear of bees many of us have, but I do doubt that. Bees should be more afraid of us actually. Watch this fantastic movie, that is heartbreaking too
