Great subject brilliantly explored
2 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a high-quality, playful documentary about animals interacting with spheres that bounce. It comprises brilliant footage of all kinds of animals with all kinds of balls and a range of experts offering intelligent, multi-disciplinary analysis.

Where did the bounce come from? Why do we play? What do we get from it?

Bounce is an important examination of the ball in history and society that should be a big hit and contribute to the betterment of life on Earth.

Intriguing and lovely.

5 stars out of 5 Andrew Bunney, Let's Go To The Pictures, 3D Radio, Australia
