"House. Rendezvous with the Planet” (“Home”, 2009) is a unique documentary film about the beauty of the nature of our Planet and its global problems that have arisen as a result of human activity. It was taken by the French photographer and journalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand, who, while traveling the world, witnessed many miracles and tragedies and found it necessary to share his impressions and findings with the general public. The film, rightfully a huge hit among environmental activists, was filmed over the course of 18 months in 53 countries and banned in 36 countries for demonstrating the consequences of a cavalier (and often illegal) attitude towards the environment. Aerial filming (from a helicopter) allowed the author to show both the greatness of nature and the horrors of environmental disasters with equal success and on a full scale.
The film "Home" is worth watching for anyone who wants to see the world through the eyes of a person who is not indifferent to the environment, the ecological troubles of the Planet and its future.
The impressive visuals are accompanied by instrumental music from Israeli composer Armand Amar. One of the producers of the film was the legendary French film director Luc Besson. Duration of the full version of the film ("Home. Travel Story"): 1 hour 52 minutes.
