Was Microcosmos shot on 70mm?

Recommended Posts

I hope many of you are familiar with a French made film called Microcosmos which focuses on the life of insects. It reminds me very much of Baraka. When I saw it at the cinema, I was blown away by how clear and sharp it looked. The close up photography in particular was incredibly sharp with amazing detail and clarity. I was wondering if this film was shot on 70mm (actually 65mm.) The only information regarding the cinematography I obtained at the time was the fact that years were spent developing the lenses for this film.

35mm - I was unaware that 'special' lenses were used - does anyone have some information about the optics? Many thanks,
