This is beautiful. Jeremy and I watched it last night. (Not for the boys, just yet.)
The 3-D and 4-D imaging is amazing, and the computer generated embryo that the film follows through complete gestation is very life-like.
The information, at the end, concerning the development of the senses is fascinating. Did you know your baby can taste your cooking before he is born? I didn't.
Also, I was amazed to hear the narrator say, "The more we see and learn about this previously hidden world, the more we see that, developmentally speaking, birth is a relatively insignificant event." (This is not an exact quote, I'm going from memory, but that was the force of it!)
Go here for previews and photos.
