Oceanworld, 2009

Oceanworld, 2009
Director: Jean-Jacques Mantello
Cast: Marion Cotillard (voice)

Oceanworld in short: A tribute to the ocean, "Oceans 3D" takes viewers on a voyage through, among others, Californian kelp forests, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and Roca Partida Island off the coast of Mexico, which is home to thousands of sharks. Audiences will witness some of the most spectacular and unforgettable scenes of life beneath the waves ever captured in 3D: the manta ray's enchanting ballet; the noble procession of hammerhead sharks; the lion fish's relentless hunt; a group of young dolphins playing algae-football; the astonishing beauty of the Spanish dancer sea slug; and a unique encounter with the largest cetaceans on the planet.

Stage: Local theatre Dvor, a good morning show, together with three kids and their mothers on a lovely morning.

Preps: I am mad about the ocean and the world inside. And, also a fan of Cousteau's documentary movies. Hence, a must to see.

Reality: A beautiful, picturesque scenery, showing hours of effort in filming everything and putting a concept together for the viewers. Alone, the scenes don't have a thin red line, however, thru a turtle voyage towards the beach where it lays the eggs, the concept shows and reveals many misteries of the ocean.

It is a must see for any fan of sea world and all those that think they know a lot about it. There are several truly endangered species put upfront, shown in their natural environment, shown as they react to other animals and moreover, the specifics of the world these creatures live in, is vividly handed to the viewer.

The music is something most important in a documetary, in this case, carefully chosen and put together to enhance the effect of specific scenes put together. As a piece, I absolutely adore it and recommend it to every fan of the nature. Also, very lively for the kids. All the kids in the theatre just ate from the turtle's mouth, virtually.

My personal rate: 9,0 (one of the most lovely documentaries I have seen lately, with a strong point about protecting the nature and showing respect to it).
