Will the "intelligent" human race stop destroying the blue planet ?
25 March 2008 | by KrovekSee all my reviews

A series of superb photos taken by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, accompanied by touching music and poetic text, showing our beautiful yet fragile Earth through an eagle's eye.

This unique planet, about 4.500.000.000 years old is brought to the edge of destruction, pollution, overcrowding and environmental crisis by a 100.000 year old species, called "Homo Sapiens".

Will the coming generations face the challenge and restore the balance to our planet ?

" We can protect only what we know well" says the artist.

This movie is a magnificent work of art, however some people may not appreciate its real value unless they have enough sensibility to understand the messages of "The Little Prince", from whom the author quotes at the end of the movie.

Thank you!
