Microcosmos

Using specially designed cameras and powerful magnifying lenses, biologists-turned-filmmakers Nuridsany and Pérennou delve into a simple French meadow on a summer’s day and explore the fascinating everyday behavior of thousands of insects in what they call “a return to science-fiction movies, [with] the same exoticism, the same excitement in the face of the unknown.” Winner of five César (French Oscars) Awards, this amazing and breathtakingly beautiful journey into the minute and intimate world of insect life proves that “Mother Nature remains the greatest special effects wizard of all.”—The New York Times
