    I went on Net Flix on my Windows 8 and couldn't find it under Documenteries. I couldn't find a place to enter a Title to search for it.

    I've watched it twice in the last week. That opening scene is wonderful! I'm still struggling with how the producers jump back and forth from the bucolic beekeeper in Switzerland to the commercial outfit in the California almonds. The film appears to have been produced to make a commentary on CCD, but touches on many subjects including bee democracy, Karl Von Frisch, foulbrood and queen rearing. With all of that skipping around between topics, I had a hard time following the CCD thread. If I were not a beekeeper, I might walk away from this film not liking John Miller and his outfit very much. With all of that being said, I really enjoyed this film. The videography is amazing. I also realized that I want to move to the Swiss Alps.

    Probably does. I just thought that since I have Netflix on my computer that I'd be able to find it that way too.

    I had a chance to see it at an Arthouse in downtown Manhattan with a presentation by the director.

    I can't wait for the DVD to add it to my collection.

    NowThen- Well said. It also would've been nice if they added subtitles.

    Having never been to California, I was left speechless at the magnitude of the almond business there. The visual really helped to put things into perspective for me. A picture really is worth a thousand words.

    I've never visited a commercial beekeeping operation, but after watching this film I don't think I would ever have a desire to build up to that level. I think I'll stick with my handful of colonies and continue to treasure the serenity and peace I find while interacting with the bees. Maybe what was recorded is not representative of a typical commercial operation, but if I were put into that position there would be no further joy in it for me. To each his own I guess.

    and there are huge fields of almond trees not that far from me.

    That was going to be my question why no subtitles? There was some great shots of bees and the scenery in the alps was amazing.

    You will find that a version with subs did come out in late Dec - at least in Australia and we are usually months behind the US

    I felt so bad for the old man when he had to burn everything. Especially when he asked how do you get it and she said from imported bees, like the ones his neighbor had earlier in the video.

    Other than money what does a beekeeper get out of the almond bloom? I didn't see a substantial buildup in the hives. Does it provide the pollen for early brood building?

    Beesohappy,
    I found that my older LG Blue-Ray player did not show subtitles for some Netflix movies - including this one. My computers and the kids' Wii shows the subtitles without a problem.

    My Netflix has an option that pops up on the bottom of the screen about subtitles that I turned on. I think it appeared when I paused the playback.
    I had time only for the first few minutes. I hope to watch it all later tonight.

    Enjoy it! I had the luck to get my hands on an original version. I was born in in Switzerland and speak the local lingo as well as German.
    Some of the photography is amazing. Even the start - watching a queen emerge is great.
