Beautiful!
'Microcosmos' is a beautiful documentary in which we see the life of insects. Very close and still very sharp the insects are on your screen. They mate, they eat, they fight each other, they work as a team, it looks beautiful.

If you like nature and have interest for these kind of things this is a perfect movie to watch. The photography is great. You learn how certain things work and you are amazed by some of the ways these insects handle things. Especially the ants look pretty smart. I liked it very much. Pay attention to the beautiful music as well.

Up Close And Personal - With Insects!
This is a French-made nature film that features a lot of closeup photography. Much of that footage is amazing stuff. How they got closeups that sharp on these insects is a tribute to the camera lenses available today and the expertise and patience of the photographers.

Some of the shots are so close that, at first, you don't know what insect you're seeing. Other insects are not familiar ones you'd recognize, anyway. Some are really strange-looking.

The colors, the wild shapes and actions of these creatures all make a for a fascinating movie in parts, one that literally all ages should enjoy, as the cliché goes. I found, however, that with no dialog, it was tough to watch more than 30 minutes at one time. You might want to break this up into two or three segments. There is sound, however: the sound these insects make. With the camera-work, it makes you feel as if you, too, were a small object on the ground listening to these strange sounds.

Obviously, this is a unique film and highly recommended.

Despite the subject, this is a nice movie
If you know the documentary "Le peuple migrateur" (or "Winged Migration" in Enlgish) and you loved it, than you also must give "Microcosmos: Le peuple de l'herbe" a try. It's not exactly the same of course, but you'll certainly recognize the same style of images and narration and the idea behind it.

This time it isn't about birds, but about insects. I know, many people don't like those creepy little creatures and to be honest, neither do I, but why shouldn't you try to get to know them a little bit better? Indeed, there's no reason why not, except for when you are terrified to even watch them on a TV-screen of course. And when you watch this documentary, I can assure you that it will surprise you, because this is the first time anybody has ever watched and portrayed these little animals in such a magnificent way. You are really able to penetrate their world and to see that meadow, pond or garden in which they live as one giant universe, their world.

I'm not saying that I started to love insects after seeing this movie, but I certainly learned to see them in a different perspective. I guess that they'll never be my favorites, but that doesn't mean of course that this documentary isn't nice to watch. The fact that everything was shot in close-up, sometimes even with time-laps camera's, just to show every little detail, makes this a very interesting view on their little world that we know so little of. I give this movie a 7/10.

Innovative and Highly Entertaining
This innovative, often highly entertaining film is spoiled only by its insistence on overstaying its welcome (by about fifteen minutes). Directors Nuridsany and Perinnou explore a world about which we know very little, and understand even less.

The amazing close-up photography reveals a veritable society that is as intricate as it is interdependent. The world of the insects is a fascinating, oft times amusing one peopled with hard working, organised ants, frantic bees, hungry birds and determined beetles, just to name a few. "Microcosmos" reveals this hidden mystery as a place where "a day is a lifetime".

Truly this movie is testimony to the unfathomable God who created this awe-inspiring world in which we live.

The most beautiful film until The Thin Red Line came along.
This is an amazing visual piece of work. The extraordinary close-ups are incredible, and it contains some of the best moments in recent cinema, including two snails getting it on - the greatest sex scene of all time (no, really). Watch it.

The Best Documentaries You'll Ever See
I was truly mesmerized when I saw Microcosmos. Never before had I seen a documentary with such brilliance. The film makers use special lenses and cameras to bring up-close shots of insects and other tiny little creatures. The most memorable moments involve beautiful scenes involving ladybugs, caterpillars, and snails.

There were a few things more that made this better than any documentary you will see on the Discovery Channel. First, a normal documentary on little creatures would show an abundance of spiders. This had one brief moment where a spider was catching grasshoppers. There was a second spider that somehow lived underwater(!) that they showed. That was an amazing moment. Second, a normal documentary would have an irritating narrator explaining everything under the sun to the audience. This one only has the narrator in the very beginning and the very end.

I am a person who never watches a movie twice, but I was so moved by Microcosmos, that I did this time. Actually, I saw it in two consecutive days. It is definitely worth everyone's time. Zanatos' score: ##### out of ##### (or a ten, on this page). Check it out.

A nature film done by the French
The technology of the human race has finally let us truly see the marvels of what lies beneath our feet every day. I don't know how a documentary on insects could ever succeed with out some guy's deep soothing voice come in to tell us what the heck was going on but this movie proved that it can defiantly be done. Micro Cosmos actually make me feel small for not realizing what happens in the real world of insects. If you thought "A Bugs Life" was cool in terms of the technical aspects, after watching this, you will know where they got they're ideas from. I have no interest in bugs, but if youre ready to be enlightened; this will do it for you.

Beautiful, fresh, cutie, natural
I am still not sure if it is counted as a documentary or film, but this does not matter. I always liked nature so this movie is near to my spirits. I wished to see it as 3D but I think that such a release has not come up yet. The movie does not need any comment or subtitles. Just watch it. Keep on and you will learn who you are and where you live. The documentary is about everything, although it focused mainly on insects. You can imagine what just an innocent step in microcosmos can cause. All these little cuties and monsters have their own world and microcosmos maps it with a mild sight. French are great at such documentaries and this can be seen as a kind of conclusion. Beautiful shots, I can imagine setting the camera for hours, waiting for proceeding of an ant and then show all that crusade during several seconds. Maybe it seems that this kind of movie does not need any screenplay, but I do not agree with it. When you watch it, you find out it made some sense. Insects also behave according to schedules and needs. Actually, there is no point in describing the movie here, you must see it and you will want more to see. Beautiful beauty.

This is not a documentary
I was very disappointed with this film. I watched it on TV, was waiting for it for a week when they announced it. Somebody compared this work with David Attenborough's, but in this movie you won't learn much about the fascinating life of bugs. All you see is some beautiful images of nature, accompanied by nice music, and it becomes pretty boring after an hour. I think it could be compared with those whale songs recorded on audio CD, personally, I prefer real music. This is like watching a football match without the commentary. I don't know much about movie photography, techniques or editing, all I can say that it seems perfect to me. So if you want to learn more about nature, go with Attenborough, this is not what you are looking for. It is a bit unusual tough, it gives it that "must see" component:).
