1 dimension
1 November 2019 | by web-534-393830See all my reviews

She is an astronaut and has a daughter. It's hard and they miss each other. End of the movie. The men in the story are poised, reliable. The father takes good care of the daughter and is always there, stable to help his ex-wife. The men that are part of the astronaut crew are stable, reliable and effective. The woman hesitates and cannot handle how to deal with her job tasks nor with her daughter. The only part that I like was the opportunity to peak into the astronaut world on Earth. Thank you for the documentary aspect of it. Everything looks too real to me. In my opinion movies should teach us through the multidimensional language of the subconscious, and this is not the case. This film has one dimension.
