Explore the wonders of the insect world as never before possible as the filmmakers who took you in a trip through the clouds in Winged Migration take you on a magical journey underground in this feature that will captivate audiences both young and old. Specially designed cameras take viewers beneath the surface of the earth and into areas previously considered inaccessible to the prying eye of the camera lens as microscopic creatures tower over the screen and perform Herculean tasks worthy of the most formidable human athlete. From the love shared between two snails to the bizarre plight of the dung beetle and the menacing beauty of the spider weaving his wondrous web, this film will make you think twice about stepping on that ant or casually killing that spider on the windowsill.

My husband watches this movie over and over again. Fascinated by the bug world. He cant wait for the dvd.
The U.S. distributor of this movie has foolishly decided to market it as a kid's entertainment, in the apparent belief that no reasonable number of adults could possibly be interested, much less spellbound, by a beautifully written and narrated and vividly shot documentary about a fascinating and overlooked segment of the natural world. In concept, content, and delivery, this title is heads and shoulders above the day-to-day fare regularly offered, and consumed by adults, on the cable television channels dedicated to nature programming. Accordingly, I would heartily recommend this movie to anyone interested in being fascinated by the beauty and complexity of nature. The technical achievement in bringing this world to life is eclipsed only by the satisfaction provided by the finished product. This movie is not just for kids and being marketed as such does it an enormous disservice.
The other reviewer said her two year old watches it for hours. I'm in my 50's and it is fabulous. I will admit to watch bugs you have to be in the right mood.
Great film about bugs. My 2 year old will sit and watch it over and over. Great quality, wonderful music, and very educational. Two Thumbs up!
