A surprising journey on an unknown planet: Earth rediscovered at a scale of one centimetre. Its inhabitants: fantastic creatures, insects and other living beings in the grass and in the water. Its countryside: an impenetrable forest of tufts of grass, drops of dew as big as footballs. This is the exploration of a new world, a simple meadow, during a summer day: a day, a night and the dawn of a second day. In this microcosm a single day is comparable to an entire season. An entire period of life where, like for insects, the arc of a life is measured in weeks.
The film is the work of two biologists from Paris who have abandoned teaching to devote themselves to the study of animal life through special filming techniques. They shot 20 kilometres of film to get this medium-length film of just over an hour. Their thesis is that by examining the life of organisms under a microscope you find yourself immersed in a magnificent fairy tale, and there is no need to travel far, just the garden of your own home. A drop of rain and a leaf are the equivalent of a whole world.
