From the dark, uncharted waters of Antarctica to the natural reefs of Australia, DEEP BLUE stunningly examines the many varieties of aquatic wildlife across the globe. This marvelous documentary, built from the best pieces of the BBC television series The Blue Planet, follows in the tradition of films like Microcosmos and Winged Migration—breathtaking works that fill us with awe and delight viewers of all ages. Intermittently narrated by Michael Gambon (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and shot in more than 200 locations, DEEP BLUE allows the wondrous visuals to speak for themselves without imposing the monotonous narration of most nature documentaries. An epic soundtrack recorded by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra ably supports the astounding images of an ocean odyssey that opens a miraculous window onto the aquatic circle of life. In photographing oceans that are less explored than outer space, DEEP BLUE conveys a riveting sense of nature’s infinite variety and offers a fantastic voyage that is not to be missed on the big screen!
