Storyline

MYSTERIES OF THE UNSEEN WORLD transports audiences to places on this planet that they have never been before, to see things that are beyond their normal vision, yet literally right in front of their eyes. Mysteries of the Unseen World reveals phenomena that can't be seen with the naked eye, taking audiences into earthly worlds secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale. Viewers experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; They "see" the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena of that occur in the flash of a microsecond; They enter the microscopic world that was once reserved only for scientists, but that Mysteries of the Unseen World makes accessible to the rest of us; They begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is TO see on this Earth. High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements in science that now allow us to see a whole new universe of ...

Only visually interesting
16 October 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Mysteries of the Unseen World" is a 39-minute documentary from 2 years ago and the narrator is Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker. Certainly, always nice to listen to him. Director Schwartzberg and writer Richards have made films for several decades, so lack of experience is certainly not an issue for this one. This documentary takes us into the breathtaking world of time lapse photography and microscopic creatures, basically everything we are not really able to perceived the way it exists, because our eyes are not capable enough. And while this documentary was certainly a success from the visual side, I cannot say I was too amazed by the contents in general unfortunately. It's by no means a bad piece of filmmaking, but it just wasn't that interesting to me and the only thing I really took from it is that there are more creatures living on my body than people are living on our planet. A pretty disturbing thought actually. All in all, I am not sure if I would recommend the watch. Maybe check out the description/trailer first and decide for yourself.
