Markus Imhoof's languid documentary, narrated by John Hurt, delves into the complex world of bees. The worrying honeybee situation – billions have vanished for unexplained reasons in the past five years – is briefly touched upon here, but this gentle, informative German production appears more interested in chatting with anxious apiarists and visiting industrialised honey farms. It lacks a bit of sting, but there's some exquisite cinematography here.
