BTDesign Award
Microcosmos (1996)


Director(s): Claude Nuridsany, Marie Perennou

Language: English

Genre: Documentary


This film provides a fascinating, up-close view of the world of insects, snails, and other tiny invertebrates as they work, eat, fight and procreate. This acclaimed French documentary was filmed with special microscopic cameras and high-resolution microphones, which bring the viewer into the subjects' figurative living room.

I am dying to own my own copy of this film. I saw it years ago on the big screen and was awestruck. It's just basically insects and bugs real close up doing whatever it is they do. Set to beautiful music, no dialogue, for two hours. May sound boring but it's anything but. Just fascinating stuff to watch and it contains possibly my favorite love scene ever put to film involving two snails. I kid you not. I mean, I've always loved animal and nature shows, but this is so much more, especially if you can watch it on a big screen. The Rep houses seem to play it once in a while, like Baraka.
