From BBC Earth Films, the studio that brought you Earth, comes the sequel - Earth: One Amazing Day, an astonishing journey revealing the awesome power of the natural world. Over the course of one single day, we track the sun from the highest mountains to the remotest islands to exotic jungles. Breakthroughs in filmmaking technology bring you up close with a cast of unforgettable characters. Told with humour, intimacy and a jaw-dropping sense of cinematic splendour, Earth: One Amazing Day highlights how every day is filled with more wonders than you can possibly imagine- until now.
Leisurely paced BBC nature documentary, narrated by Robert Redford, which travels across the globe, in one day, to discover some wondrous goings on in the animal kingdom. I've seen many nature films but this one had numerous scenes that I had never witnessed before, like a sloth crossing a river trying to answer the call of a potential mate.
Often shot in close-ups, slo-mo, or time lapse photography the movie offers some truly amazing insight into wildlife and our natural habitat. There is one sequence involving snakes lying in wait to attack young iguanas as they emerge from their nesting place that may be too much for young children, but otherwise I would think the entire family could enjoy and learn from this documentary.
Overall, I found this film to be exceptional.
