“Earth: One Amazing Day,” the sequel to BBC Earth Films’ “Earth,” is another jaw-dropping trip around the world. With its G rating, the documentary is kid-friendly, but adults will be equally awed by the animal wonders and how the filmmakers captured them in such exquisite detail.
Narrated with warmth and dry humor by Robert Redford, the documentary is a dozen films in one.
There’s suspense in a sequence that has a just-hatched marine iguana trying to outrace a horde of hungry snakes. A bear scratching its back on a tree brings the comedy. A Venus flytrap snaps at its squirming victim, and we feel like we’re watching a horror movie.
The score from Alex Heffes highlights the emotion in each scene, expertly easing the transition as the tone changes from moment to moment.
