Finally settled in to watch Microcosmos last week after Tivoing it several weeks ago. James Berardinelli sums up how I felt about the film pretty well (4 1/2 stars at least). My favorite scene features a dung beetle trying to roll a bit of dinner up a hill; a more Sisyphean struggle I haven't seen. The producer of Microcosmos, Jacques Perrin, has a film out in American theatres right now called Winged Migration that I'm quite keen on seeing as well.
