Storyline

"I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth." These words spoken by President John F. Kennedy in May 1961 changed the lives of twelve men who became known as "Moonwalkers." The Wonder of it All focuses on the rarely told human side of the men behind the Apollo missions through thoughtful and candid accounts from seven Moonwalkers. Astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Alan Bean, Edgar Mitchell, John Young, Charles Duke, Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt intimately reflect on the training, the tragedies, the camaraderie and the effect their space travel has had on their families. The Wonder of it All honors the men who walked on the moon and became heroes to a nation. They fulfilled the dream of humankind to set foot on another world and, in so doing, forever changed the way we view ourselves. Written by Jeffrey Roth

Quotes

Edgar D. Mitchell: Our Command Module Pilot, Stuart Roosa, he always had the remark when we started to ignite engines, "Well, gentlemen, it's sweaty palms time again." And, yes, there's always a heightened sense of alertness and apprehension when you ignited engines, because likely if something was gonna happen, that's when it was gonna happen.

What an amazing film.

I didn't know what to expect when I walked into an advance screening of this film several weeks ago. The space race has been covered ad nauseum in the past, most recently in the disappointing film In the Shadow of the Moon, which to me was just a rehash of the same old stuff. (Besides, they only concentrate on the Apollo 11 mission, when there were six missions that went to the moon. What about the other guys?) This film is different because it introduces the astronauts who walked on the moon as people. I didn¢t know anything about the different personalities of the astronauts before this film. But the seven astronauts featured are so different, and by the time the film is over you feel like you actually know them personally. It is as if you have been invited to their homes for a personal conversation.

There are many subjects covered that I never thought of before. What does moon dust smell like and feel like? What happens after you walk on the moon, then have to find an occupation later? What do you think of when you look at the moon after being there many years ago? The style of the documentary is unlike anything I've ever seen before. There is no narration. It's made up of conversations with the astronauts that have been edited smoothly to make an ongoing dialogue. At first I didn¢t think it would work for the entire film, but there is a crescendo that happens that makes the whole film worthwhile and wonderful.

I hope that this film comes out on DVD soon. I would like to own a copy. It is worth watching over and over
