This spellbinding movie does for the oceans what 'Travelling Birds' did for the skies. 'Deep Blue' plunges you into the spectacle of the seas and takes you on a journey from shallow coral reefs to the barren shores of the Antarctic, from vast stretches of open ocean to the nocturnal landscapes of the ocean's deepest chasms. The film was shot in more than 200 locations around the world over five years and with camera crews descending as far as 5,000 metres in the most powerful submersible craft known. In celebrating the ecology, tenacity, diversity and beauty of ocean life, 'Deep Blue' transcends the genre of nature documentary to become something entirely new.
Featuring a lush George Fenton score performed by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and narration by actor Michael Gambon, 'Deep Blue' is a hypnotic, dramatic and trailblazing voyage into a magical, mesmerising and vanishing universe.
The oceans are the last frontier on our planet - and 'Deep Blue' is the definitive exploration of that frontier. It is a truly powerful reminder of the marine wonders that few can ever experience first-hand. A truly amazing and visually stunning experience, 'Deep Blue' is a film that will delight all ages and like 'Microcosmos' and 'Travelling Birds', is an awe-inspiring and surprisingly emotional experience.
