Eggs are the source of life – and a source of food. Part of a delicate cycle that keeps life on earth in balance. If herrings’ eggs weren’t eaten by gannets they would take over the world. But why do the gannets lay pointy eggs? (so they don’t roll off a cliff ). How long does it take an Austrian chicken to make an egg? (let’s watch from the inside!). Why does the Ostrich lay white eggs that attract predators from kilometers away (clue: because it’s hot). This fi lm by Astrid Miller (director of “Wild Boar – The Comeback”) cracks open the mystique surrounding the egg with spectacular and amusing results.
