Setting aside ‘The Blue Planet’ TV series from which this awestruck feature compilation is culled, this BBC-produced marine-life survey recalls nothing so much as the all-synthetic ‘Finding Nemo’. It’s pretty cool that we can now recreate these entire worlds for manipulation at the drag of a mouse; cooler yet that we can record and share the real thing with free-roving modern cameras. Michael Gambon’s narration keeps a low profile, and the film’s opulent, silky symphonic images soon have you spellbound.
