The legend reborn
12 April 2014 | by kommy-138-866498See all my reviews

Hands down, this is one of the best movies about space exploration. It is as close to the real events as it can be, no special effects, just a plain story of a country boy, who become an icon of 20th century.

Gagarin was a talented pilot, so were many others, but what set him apart was his demeanour towards his friends and colleague in the space training.

His life path wasn't easy, born to a family of humble peasants, who were pretty beat up by the life after the decimating WWII, he wasn't nurtured as a dreamer or even given any aspirations in his life.

It remains a mystery how Gagarin became such an eternal optimist. His own father refused to believe that it was his son orbiting around the Earth.

This disconnect haunted Gagarin most of his life, and therefore made the movie a true drama of human life and a triumph of a daring explorer, as Gagarin by chance found himself.

If you are looking for a Hollywood flick- look elsewhere, this is a very exact historic drama of a life of a person, who risked everything to be first of a kind, and it will keep you in suspense to the very end.
