Over the course of one single day, we track the sun from the highest mountains to the remotest islands, from exotic jungles to urban jungles. Astounding breakthroughs in filmmaking technology bring you up close and personal with a cast of unforgettable characters; a baby zebra desperate to cross a swollen river, a penguin who heroically undertakes a death-defying daily commute to feed his family, a family of sperm whales who like to snooze vertically and a sloth on the hunt for love.
Told with humour, intimacy, emotion and a jaw-dropping sense of cinematic splendour, Earth: One Amazing Day is the enchanting big screen family friendly adventure that spectacularly highlights how every day is filled with more unseen dramas and wonders than you can possibly imagine.
»The film largely avoids the treacly anthropomorphism that afflicts Disney’s efforts and makes them resemble live-action versions of cartoons. And it features genuinely stunning photography that certainly benefits from being seen on the big screen. Narrated by Robert Redford, Earth: One Amazing Day proves inspirational in its depiction of the wonders of the natural world.«
- Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
»The movie is unified by its constant state of marvel at the world around us and its focus on the sun's effects on the planet and its inhabitants. The film's structure takes the audience from the early morning to the dark of night, revealing each animal's experience at different times of day. From towering giraffes to flitting hummingbirds, these creatures are shown in ways that most people have never seen. It's a stunning feat of technology and artistry.«
- Kimber Myers, Los Angeles Times
»With a crew of about 100 from China and Britain, the film took 142 days of shooting and three years of editing from more than 12,000 DVDs that capture footage in the wild.
The film has stunning scenes, such as giraffes fighting for territory, millions of mayflies over a river and baby iguanas’ thrilling escape from snakes.«
- Xu Fan, The Telegraph
»This gorgeous nature documentary megamix, rightfully earns its place on the big screen. Baby iguanas being chased by snakes? The young zebra almost drowning on a river crossing? The funny sloth swimming for a mate? They’re all there, and sprinkled throughout a narrative structure that purports to describe an average high-drama day for creatures across the globe, but is really just a chance to stop and marvel at astounding, often humbling imagery (and cue six sperm whales, napping, vertically, just below the surface).«
