Director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland) and producer Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator) team up to offer this candid snapshot of a single day on planet Earth. Compiled from over 80,000 YouTube submissions by contributors in 192 countries, Life in a Day presents a microcosmic view of our daily experiences as a global society. From the mundane to the profound, everything has its place as we spend 90 minutes gaining greater insight into the lives of people who may be more like us than we ever suspected, despite the fact that we're separated by incredible distances. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
If the comparison was for Koyanasqui or National Geographics I felt the intention fell short. But to sift through so much information then script it for viewing cohesively was admirable. I felt though a little more scrutiny could have been offered. Yes, it was slow or confusing but at times uplifting. I leave it to the viewer to decide but I would not give it three stars.
