  1. FISCHER's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    Une curiosité peu ragoutante ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. DrFirestone's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    Interesting, retro insight into the microcosm starring jellyfish. Quite impressive footage. I loved how a sample taken from a canal under a bridge in this film managed to transport us into another world...

  3. panagiotatos's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    7/10 the small world a great world...

  4. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

  6. LibertyCapz's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    There weren't any subtitles, so I didn't understand much of what was said. It looked cool though.

  7. Tibulle85's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    Sous le pont le plus banal qui soit, sous des algues gluantes et anonymes, se cachent de fascinants univers quasi-microscopiques, où la vie se reproduit et se déploie sans relâche selon les méthodes les plus imaginatives et variées (3 façons différentes rien que pour ces petites méduses!!). Un film encore extraordinaire à regarder aujourd'hui qui me donne envie de me replonger dans "l'évolution créatrice" de Bergson!

  8. fearraigh's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    As in much of Painlevé's work, there is a tension between the documentary facts and the poetic visual evocation. The jellyfish in the film at times look as mesmerically kinetic as a Norman McClaren film.

  9. Justepourmesouveniraprès's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    On se sent un gamin qui découvre un mystère beau et insaisissable!

  12. cyrikelly's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    C'est féérique! c'est magique.

  13. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    Peut-être plus "classique" ce Painlevé-là, mais toujours aussi étrange tant la micro-photographie est sidérante. Mais comment naissent les Pandas ? Ce doit être chou !

  14. Ludovic72's rating of the film How Some Jellyfish Are Born

    Quand les méduses nous médusent, sans même avoir besoin d'un radeau... Certes, la blague est facile. Il n'empêche que ces venimeuses bestioles tant redoutées, observées ici au microscope et en accéléré, ont des modes de reproduction (multiples : par bourgeonnement ou ponte !) d'une étonnante complexité et une façon de manger qui retourne l'estomac. Painlevé ne les rend pas sympathiques, mais il les décrit fort bien.
