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

Excellent Film
14 July 2013 | by Hollywood_YodaSee all my reviews

I saw this film earlier today when I could find nothing else worthy to watch. It was on NETFLIX of all places. I thought it may be educational, so I turned it on.

The camera-work was amazing as were the sights and sounds. Beautiful colors and landscapes backdrop the world of flowers and how they are pollinated across the world, from deserts to lush grassy areas. One of the best documentary films I have ever had the chance to see, and I have seen all of the Disney True-Life Adventure films of the 1950s and 60s.

The directing was wonderful, however, the narration could have used some work. Rated 10/10 because it is a beautiful film.
