Storyline

WINGS OF LIFE launches into the stories of selected animal characters--a bat, a hummingbird, a butterfly, and a bee--stories that reveal the extraordinary importance of flowers and their pollinator partners. Though we primarily associate flowers with beauty, we often don't realize how essential they truly are--that without flowing plants and their winged messengers, and the foods they produce, we humans might not survive. Using special cinematic techniques, we explore the mystical intersection of the animal and plant worlds where life regenerates itself over and over again. It's this seductive dance that feeds the early, and today that dance is threatened. Written by Anonymous

Disney's Visually Impressive Jubilation Over Pollination
25 February 2016 | by strong-122-478885See all my reviews

*Advanced Warning!* - I strongly recommend that you watch this DisneyNature documentary without the truly irksome "I-am-a-flower" narration (spare me!) from veteran, Hollywood actress, Meryl Streep.

I suggest that you turn off Streep's droning voice and turn on some of your favourite ambient music and enjoy watching Wings Of Life (WOL, for short) in that much more pleasant mode.

With Streep's preposterous narration aside - I guarantee that the images you are about to see in this 80-minute documentary are, without question, a truly fantastic and wonderful feast for the eyes.

When it comes to WOL's visuals - It was so clear to see that absolutely no expense was spared to present to the viewer some of the most vivid and astoundingly beautiful imagery imaginable.

Believe me, had it not been for Streep's annoying narration, then I would have not hesitated giving WOL a full 8-star rating, no questions asked.
