Loner who reached for the sky
15 April 2019 | by felice-51949See all my reviews

This story is a girl who was different, felt out of place and looked at the sky and got a bit curious. As we know from watching the series, Hana's dreams came into a reality as she eventually got to go to space as an astronaut. The cinematography of this film is great. The casting was great, I like the performances of Hana and Joon Seung by Nekhebet and Uatchet Juch and even the waitress at the diner was greatly cast. I actually would have loved to see a 2nd Part of "Before Mars" even though this one sets the backstory of Hana's youth nicely. It's a bit nostalgic and pretty cool / smart National Geographic did this. I think a lot of series should have a digital event feature after a shows success... ie: "Better Call Saul" perhaps would have made a good event feature during Season 2 of "Breaking Bad."
