This documentary film is about the sun and the solarmax phenomenon.
25 November 2006 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Well, I've seen this film a long time ago in a museum, but I still watch it every once in a while on DVD. It's the first and only documentary film I have ever bought, cause I'm not really into buying this kind of films. It's a documentary film about the sun and the solarmax, a phenomenon that happens every 11 years. Just the music makes this movie worth watching. It's really good. Perhaps if you're not interested in scientific topics, you won't like this film so much, although I find it a very "watchable" documentary, even if you're not very interested in the topic. Locations are amazing. Also, they really do explain very good many things about the sun and they make you be interested on it. Some images are astounding, specially the ones with the Aurora and the ones with the sun not setting in the poles. Although some times the movie can be a little bit pretentious, and perhaps a little bit too dramatic, but maybe that's the point, to amaze people.
