Claude Nuridsany, Marie Perennou
cast:
a host of (non-Hollywood) insects

Using innovative and specially-designed equipment, the film captures the miniature world of insects in a magical light. Gorgeous and stunning views of insects are revealed in a story that is filled with surprisingly hilarious moments. Two love-struck snails get it on, one sadly deceived bee flirts with a flower, a beetle struggles titanically to get a ball of dung up a hill, and a cadre of caterpillars plays “train” only to end up following each other in circles.
