THE HUMAN BODY (Peter Georgi) is an Omnimax presentation pitched to school-age children on the gigantic screen.
While some of it is extraordinary -- if anyone has ever wanted to see a heart valve opening and closing directly over one's head on a screen the size of a football field, or the little hairs inside the inner ear magnified a million or so times so they look like some kind of weird coral formation, this is the place to see it. On the other hand, much of what passes for "a day in the life of the body" is not really that at all. One of the characters is about to be a mom, and the day in her life seems to last about six months, since she starts out six weeks pregnant and gives birth later on. Outstanding baby swimming footage, though. NNN (Ontario Science Centre Omnimax Theatre)
