Movie: Blue Planet
Posted by: Guest
Rating: Excellent
This is a lyric poem delivered in film media.  It's them is simple:  Earth is your mother, you should love your mother.  It's departure point is the vantage of space, from which one can look back and see, you guessed it, a blue planet, Earth.  Altho it includes the magical "Earth rise" picture taken aboard the Apollo trip at Christmas 1968 (?), it adds to that magical image a cascade of vistas all over the world. It is narrated by a woman whose voice, against the backdrop of a touching score, ultimately takes you over.  You hear her describe the power of nature, the magic of renewal, and yes the tragedy of extinction, noting clearly that man -- not the snail darter -- is in reality the endangered species.  The film is powerful, visually, intellectually, and most importantly, emotionally.  It ends with a series of simple statements.  Earth is home to the Arabs and the Jews.  Earth is home to the Vietnamese.  She is home to all of us.
