The Living Sea

release year: 1995
genre: documentary
viewing setting: Fernbank IMAX theater, 8/5/05

synopsis: This is a documentary about the variety of life in the world's oceans, how it affects all of us, and why we should study and appreciate it.

impressions: Pretty good documentary, if a little short. It shows us a variety of things: underwater kelp forests, surfers, unmanned deep-sea submarines, a family in the Paulu Islands who appreicates and loves the sea, and a Coast Guard boat running through heavy waves.

something this movie has that no other movie has: Jellyfish who lack natural predators, and thus don't sting as you swim among them.

acting: n/a, though you get to enjoy Meryl Streep's narration and Sting's music.

final word: Godo ocean documentary.
