This is a stunning documentary about life in and by the oceans of the world. Narration is minimal, so you usually don't know where the footage is from - other than the ocean - but that really didn't bother me. I was enthralled from start to finish, even though I found the footage of the seal being caught in the surf by a killer whale and tossed into the air as the whale swam off with it, and another part where three killer whales separated a baby whale from its mother by exhausting it and then killing it were sad is a little disturbing. Still, that's the way it is in nature, and it's all about staying alive one way or another. I agree that those two parts may be a bit too intense for little kids. It isn't gory or graphic (there is blood in the water), but it's very clear what is happening. It isn't Disney! Later in the film, spectacular footage is shown from the very depths of the ocean and the bizarre-looking creatures who live in total darkness. Simply amazing! The "Making of" feature on the DVD is almost as fascinating as the film itself, and gives a great deal of technical information about the filming process as well as personal insights from the filmmakers themselves.
