This film has a very rare 100% rating on 'Rotten Tomatoes' (just for comparison, 'Gravity' has 97%), which is one of the reasons I wanted to check it out. Another reason would be that it was recommended to me by people who are normally more into films like 'Die Hard' or 'Starship Troopers'. Now, having seen the movie, I can clearly see why that is. This beautiful documentary has a lot more to offer than just information (as interesting, disturbing and educating said information definitely is); what you get here is also great, cinematic entertainment. There are characters in this film - the old beekeeper, for instance - which made me laugh out loud, and then there are moments of such breathtaking beauty I nearly cried. And the cinematography - wow; just: wow! I don't know how they got to film the bees so close; if it was done with CGI or other computer tricks, the effects would certainly be Oscar-worthy. As far as I'm concerned, this masterpiece can compete with anything in the 'blockbuster' category that Hollywood has put out recently. Great, informative entertainment and a visual feast, this film will make you see bees with different eyes. My vote: 10 out of 10.
