a slow burning dream
30 July 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

Of an austronaut dream, that is borned by a comet passing by the earth. the old man in the main of the story, may represent all of us other dreamers that always have wanted that too. its a flick engined with bloodpressure medication, and the man has to take a stroke or two before he is able to take of.

its also about living a life in an instotutionalized environment, in this case a home for the sick and old, where tear and care are the tune. its a slow burner, that without any pessimism at all, it is just that the actors are becoming so old and physically slow in their movements,but its good and its well delivered by mr dreyfuss.

the grumpy old man wont give more than 6, its a film for young and old as a 50 years celebration for the first man to walk on the moon.
