“L’odyssée de la vie” is a documentary tracing the nine months of pregnancy: from conception to birth.
The couple Manu and Barbara expecting their first child. The documentary follows this couple who, week after week, evolve with this pregnancy. Thanks to development of synthesis and the scientific data, the director, Nils Tavernier, shows viewers life in-utero.
Documentary, related by Jacques Perrin, uses synthetic images very realistically. The number: 2000 hours of incredible work done by Mac Guff Ligne. The story of Barbara and Manu is evidently not put aside; the documentary follows them all through this adventure. It’s one of the first documentaries to use the new technologies to realize some synthetic images.
