Clearly, the picture is noteworthy. Especially it will be interesting to those who are concerned about environmental issues, globalization, urbanization, etc.
Optimistic film about the sad end of our world. The authors fantasize about how the planet can escape from the globalization that destroys it. Film gives the examples of autonomous communities, local economies, implemented or revived ideas that can be effective mechanisms for rescue from the sixth wave of extinction. Which, by the way, the authors categorically attribute to human activities. Researchers' arguments are based on the examples which are not some freak phenomenons, but a very real experience of successful farms, businesses, cities and even countries.
From the artistic point of view the film also has a fair value. Temporytm is provided by the interesting plans, offscreen dialogues, unobtrusive infographics and a wonderful soundtrack. Non accidental and very stylish music - is the most successful technical solution that adorns the story.
The film is generally bright, shot in light colors, and the characters turn to the audience with a lively optimism, though they are saying that in 100 years we can disappear as a species if we will not start to make at least some effort for our own salvation.
This film brought the second Cesar to the star of 'Inglourious Basterds' Mélanie Laurent. Only the first she has received as an actress for the movie "Do not worry, I'm fine" in 2007, and now she has won as a director in the category Best Documentary Film.
Clearly, the picture is noteworthy. Especially it will be interesting to those who are concerned about environmental issues, globalization, urbanization, etc. It is unlikely that it will move the boulder of all- consuming capitalism, reach out the hearts of politicians and businessmen. But many things are going to clarify.
