This was very disappointing. For the first time ever I felt rather 'ripped off' by my purchase from Amazon. The major part of this documentary is based on an interview with a German commentator with English translation superimposed. Very little 3D footage of butterflies or their 'incredible journey'.

My original review of this Bluray production was objected to by the director, Timo Mayer, who wanted it removed, because I mistakenly alluded to a recent NOVA production, in which I wrongly suggested that this was a cut down version of the NOVA DVD.

It isn't! NOVA need lose no sleep over any semblance of competition in the field of nature presentations, if this effort by Timo Mayer is anything to go by. By comparison, the NOVA production is in the realm of Oscar territory - whereas this is about as inspiring as a public health information television broadcast. Dreary, is being generous...

Commentator, Herr Doctor Michael Boppre has all the charisma of a funeral director, with a set pained and seemingly bored expression on his face as he appears throughout the programme. During which he delivers a stream of unsmiling, dry facts and statistics, without moving from his desk. I could visualise his student's falling asleep at his lectures after 10 minutes of his dull monotone voice. This dirge is interspersed with what appears to be stock footage of the Monarch fluttering about in forests, flying through trees or fields, or hanging off trees by the thousand, most of the time. I would be surprised if any classical planning or on site filming was done during the cobbling together of this dull-as-ditchwater documentary. There is little shot variation.

The animated diagrams of migration, etc., are at the level of primary school illustrations.

There appears to be no attempt to emotionally involve the audience. To cap it all, one has to listen to what must be the most hackneyed piece of classical music, wailing its way all through the monotonous 40 minute production - Vivaldi's 'Rite of Spring' (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz).

The narration was far too convoluted - repetitious, confusing in parts.

Pity, it's a wonderful, unique, lifestyle that these gorgeous butterflies have!

Very documentary like in it's approach. Lovely 3D images of butterflies but it gets a bit repetitive and isn't as engaging as it could've been. Bit disappointed as it was a gift.
