Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo delves into the ineffable mystery of Japan's age-old love affair with insects. A labyrinthine meditation on nature, beauty, philosophy and Japanese culture that might just make you question if your 'instinctive' repulsion to bugs is merely a trick of western conditioning.

Fast service - good product. What more do I need to say? It is exactly what I wanted and I would recommend this product and seller. I love this documentary. It combines science, culture and is wonderful. Expand your world and appreciate nature.

My local natural history museum showed this film so I thought it would be filled with philosophical and scientific information. I loved the sections with haiku but the rest of the film seemed to be taken up with long footage of beetles trapped in jars and boxes being purchased for exorbitant prices.

I first saw this at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago in 09, great educational film, my 10 year old brothers loved it! Some of the bugs shown are ones that I as a western viewer would have never even thought existed. Beautifully done, a little bit like microcosmos.

Excellent editing of fascinating subject matter and great soundtrack; film causes one to reflect upon life in general as well as wonderful cultural differences.
