Absolutely brilliant
8 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

WOW! just WOW! When I saw this documentary starting up on the television, i thought it would be just another Animal Planet style of depicting animals in the usual fashion, but boy was I wrong!!!

The visuals in this film are absolutely fascinating. Taking the perspective of a tiny mouse and other tiny creatures that we don't seem to care much about as opposed to large cats. Who would have thought the film maker could have captured such a suspenseful existence! The way the film is shot, takes you right beside these little fellas, and shows the courage that they much show each day, in such glorious fashion! Slow motion shots capture a much more entertaining style of Hollywood film and at the same time, maintain a level of education that you would find in any well planned out documentary. Stephen Fry does a great job in narrating the film in a very calm fashion. It doesn't need lively commentary, because the visuals take care of that!

As far as documentaries are concerned, this is essential viewing. I am so glad I checked it out when it came out on television here in Australia, and you can be assured that I will be tracking down the DVD!
