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

Visually, A Very Dazzling Presentation, But, The Voice-Over Narration Nearly Ruined It For Me

Strictly from a visual perspective - I was quite impressed with this nature documentary (concerning butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, bats, and flowers) from Disney Productions.

Yes. "Wings of Life's" frequent use of awe-inspiring high-speed filming techniques certainly succeeded in holding my rapt attention throughout this colorful and educational 80-minute presentation.

But, on the down side - Unfortunately, "Wings of Life" was seriously marred by its dreary and downright demented "I-Am-A-Flower" narration that was lifelessly recited by veteran Hollywood actress, Meryl Streep........ Like - "WTF!!??"
