420 indeed! Get buzzed, kick back and enjoy. Certainly the most artful and beautifully filmed of pseudo insect documentary films. Being the nature doc geek that I am, I'd of appreciated some narration but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Some people are captivated by the endless expanse of the universe beyond; far less explore the small worlds under their very feet. This movie (yes, it's French but it's really just film paired with music, no Francais proficiency required) sets out to refocus us on the small yet immensely important things we rarely notice. Insects, amphibians, and all manner of small creatures interact in this artful documentary. You may not come away with any hard facts and figures, but the film speaks for itself. The beauty found in strange things, things often labeled "gross" and "creepy", is staggering. The microcosmos is redeemed!
