  As in “Microcosmos” and “Winged Migration”, the city is also “Deep Blue” on magic and the charm of nature and the unique images.

Is impressive in “Deep Blue” already the background of formation: The film is one of the most elaborate and most unusual documentaries ever realized. For years, the director Alastair Fothergill and his co-director around the world move to avert yet unseen images of the oceans on film: “We take the viewer into a world that he has never seen before, at a , I believe, the last blank spots on the map of our planet, “he explains. And indeed, the filmmakers managed only breathtakingly beautiful images and the scientific discovery of one or the other, because during the filming of a new species of ocean dwellers were discovered, and many of the illustrated forms of life were filmed for the first time ever. Originated

within 5 years more than 7,000 hours of footage that was filmed in over 200 different locations. The trip goes from shallow coral reefs, on the inhospitable coast of Antarctica, in the vastness of the open sea, to the deepest depths of the oceans, into the eternal darkness. The film and the simultaneously generated television series “The Blue Planet”, the ARD broadcast in July 2003, together cost about 17 million U.S. dollars. In Britain, the show achieved phenomenal 52 per cent audience share. She was also honored at the International Nature Film Festival Wildscreen in Bristol, with three Golden panda – a sort of Oscar for wildlife films.

The excellent and deeply emotional film score by George Fenton, who did include the score for “Gandhi” and “Cry Freedom”, is hardly any space for explanatory comments. Also in the musical realization of the film sets standards, for the first time the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra asked her for the recording of a soundtrack available. A movie experience for the eyes and ears.
