ABOUT THE MOVIE:
From Disneynature, the studio that brought you Eartj, Oceans, African Cats and Chimpanzee, comes Wings of Life - a stunning adventure full of intrigue, drama and mesmerizing beauty. Narrated by Meryl Streep, this intimate and unprecedented look at butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, bats and flowers is a celebration of life, as a third of the world's food supply depends on these incredible - and increasingly threatened - creatures.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, Wings of Life utilizes riveting high-speed, time lapse and macro filmmaking to showcase in spectacular detail these unsung heoes of our planet.
This film has left me speechless. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to see this and share it with my daughter. So often we plop down in front of the tv and put our brains on a little break while we watch a movie. This film did not let our brains take a break. Instead it took our minds and souls to another world... the word of nature. It opened our eyes to the beauty and our hearts to the reality of what these creatures mean to our existance and the very scary thought of them no longer being around.
My daughter has loved butterflies for quite some time now. She sees them and gets excited. She chases them around the yard and flaps her wings as if she was one of them. So it was easy to get her to sit down and watch a movie that brought her up close and personal with these beautiful creatures. The butterflies were her favorite part of the film, but I adored that throughout she would ask questions about what she was seeing or pick up on something the narrator said and ask what she meant. It was an incredible learning experience for both of us on different levels.
This film will change the way you look at nature. The camera work is magical.... the details and colors you see are nothing short of amazing. Meryl Streep was the perfect choice as a narrator as you truly feel like you are going on a journey with her. The emotion in her voice transfers so nicely with what you are seeing on the screen.
I think everyone should have the wonderful opportunity to see this film. Kids and adults will find it magical, informative, and eye opening.
