More than Honey !
17 June 2013 | by vep10See all my reviews

What an excellent documentary!!! The cinematography is breath taking and you are able to see bees up close like you've never been able to before. This documentary does an amazing job at exploring the reasons why bees are so important for us. The beekeeping process is fascinating, it shows a small family of beekeepers and the industrialized honey farms! This beautiful film shows the relationship between us and honeybees and makes you want to save them all ! I was on the official website earlier (www.morethanhoneyfilm.com) and it's definitely worth it, they have great pictures to look at :) totally check it out!! you will not regret it, it teaches you a lot!
