Excellent
6 April 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I was also in Fantasporto, and I was one of that part of the audience who enjoyed the film, a very imaginative, original and well, very well played low-budget science fiction film. "Próxima" carried me to my childhood dreams, when my main desire was to be a space traveler. "Proxima" communicates a sense of wonder that don't many films do now, a sense of wonder like the classic sci-fi had. Carlos Atanes is a great dreamer, and he has made a film for dreamers. I understand perfectly there are people who only enjoy action and special effects: OK, "Próxima" is not for them. But I and the people who really love the essential science-fiction, based on concepts instead of pyrotechnics shall be conscious of its greatness.
