Deep Blue is a documentary from the year 2003 . It is the theatrical version of the eight-part BBC series Our Blue Planet .


The film shows the world's oceans in all their facets: from coral reefs and lagoons to the deep oceans and their inhabitants. Images can be seen from a depth of up to 5000 meters.


“An extraordinarily brilliantly photographed, sparse, but not uninformative commentary and provided with epic orchestral music, cinematic dance about more or less exotic sea creatures and their 'struggle' for survival. Despite all the shortenings, an intelligent and fascinating feast for the eyes and ears. "
