Awesome, beautiful, and slightly disturbing
20 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie is like honey to your visual senses. With picturesque Switzerland in the background, it is shown how bees were kept in the past. And how nowadays massive commercial beekeeping takes place in North America. Like a traveling circus, the bees are shipped from one place to the next to pollinate flowers of various fruits and nuts with total disrespect. You can't help pity the poor creatures, as their owners can only think of money, and have no love.

This movie is a cinematographic masterpiece that tells you about the crises the bees are currently in. Colonies collapse without a clear reason. Like with the bio-industry, it makes you think that this is not the way to treat other animals, even if they are insects. Colony collapse? I think it's just the bees way of going on strike.
