Reception

Microcosmos (film) movie scenes

Roger Ebert gave Microcosmos 4/4 stars, calling it "...an amazing film that allows us to peer deeply into the insect world and marvel at creatures we casually condemn to squishing." Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote, "...this quick, captivating film offers a taste of the exotic to viewers of any stripe (or spot). And it's a breathtaking reminder that Mother Nature remains the greatest special effects wizard of all."
