I have watched this movie once. This was on .

My Octopus Teacher


This is a beautiful and personal documentary. It is a simple, focused film but it holds your attention throughout. I was in awe of the photography and everything immerses you in this magical and otherworldly environment. There is some narrative but the film is mostly about humans connecting with nature; a love story between a man and an octopus. It’s heart-warming and quite literally breathtaking.

What an absolute surprise. Watch this film.
