Stunning images and very interesting to listen to

Well after reading the other reviews I come to the conclusion that I'm the first one that loved this documentary. It's only fourty minutes long but I feel I learned more in those fourty minutes than in a complete school year. And not only it is instructive but it is also beautifully shot, with stunning images from different techniques as high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology. I don't know wich one I prefered, they all brought something special to this documentary. The nanotechnology was amazing and sometimes a bit creepy, but oh so interesting. All the things our eyes are not capable to see are shown in this documentary and it's just amazing. Forrest Whitaker is in charge of the narrating voice and that was also a pleasant voice to listen to. If you have fourty minutes time and you like science and nature this is a must-see.

Only visually interesting

"Mysteries of the Unseen World" is a 39-minute documentary from 2 years ago and the narrator is Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker. Certainly, always nice to listen to him. Director Schwartzberg and writer Richards have made films for several decades, so lack of experience is certainly not an issue for this one. This documentary takes us into the breathtaking world of time lapse photography and microscopic creatures, basically everything we are not really able to perceived the way it exists, because our eyes are not capable enough. And while this documentary was certainly a success from the visual side, I cannot say I was too amazed by the contents in general unfortunately. It's by no means a bad piece of filmmaking, but it just wasn't that interesting to me and the only thing I really took from it is that there are more creatures living on my body than people are living on our planet. A pretty disturbing thought actually. All in all, I am not sure if I would recommend the watch. Maybe check out the description/trailer first and decide for yourself.

Worth seeing it

This is a 3D large IMAX screen. The music is omnipresent and too strong. Not for kids under 10 years old. Interesting for adults, although the film doesn't have a structure being a little disorganized. The best images of extreme close-ups are amazing but last very little, only a few seconds each. We wish we could look more at them. The first time I learn an atom was filmed. Not all the movie is interesting. The first part is about light waves and it's too scientific. The close up images of minuscule creatures are not too many, but are indeed amazing. There is a moment where the film focuses about microorganisms living on human body surface. I didn't feel this was needed, might make some people getting worried about the subject.
