I waited over a year to watch this movie. I eagerly awaited the release in the USA. I love Eva Green, she is the only reason I wanted to watch this. She is an amazing actress. I also liked that this movie was going to be about a mother/daughter.
But oh my gosh, I got an hour into the movie (about halfway) and I was just thinking, “is anything going to happen?”. Nothing really happens and I had to turn it off and go to bed and finish it the next day but there really wasn’t anything pulling me to watch it. I also had to focus on what was being said as it’d switch from English to French constantly so I have to go from listening to reading, which isn’t bad but would warrant watching twice which, the movie was to boring I don’t think I can watch twice. There were no characters I cared about, no real plot or questions that kept me watching. Her daughter is sad, the mom must train at work to go up into space and her daughter having tantrums distracts her. Nothing much interesting happens. At one point it becomes interesting where the little girl seemingly runs off and for a slip second it seems like she gets kidnapped and you think “oh it’s about to get good”, but no it is a false alarm and she was just off playing. Of course through the movie you end up getting frustrated because the mom wants to leave her daughter for space but her daughter is at the age where she really needs her. This movie has no action, no real drama, no soundtrack, no romance. Most annoying: Breaking a health protocol just to see her daughter, I mean choose to be an astronaut or a mom. There was no character development, no lessons, it was just like a day in the life of. What’s the point? Why should I care? Why watch?
I really wish I hadn’t spent money to rent this, especially $8. Please wait til it’s cheaper or free to watch because it’s a chore to watch.
