This is a documentary by Quebec director Yung Chang, following a number of people that are either obsessed with fruits or in other ways associated with them. We are taken to some exotic locations, e.g. Bali, Hawaii, and this provides a good, visual break from the usual close-up looks of fruits of all kinds. Fairly high on its educational value.

Hohum documentary with not much details on featured fruits, exotic ones or otherwise. The dramatizations and animations were distractions. See what the fruit hunters had missed in Summary.

Great documentary about the history and future of fruit. Good for anyone interested in protecting biodiversity.
