Audience Reviews for Astronautas
In "Astronautas," Daniel(Nancho Novo) is desperate to give up using drugs. So desperate is he that he hires a couple of shepherds to lock him up for a couple of days. When that obviously does not work, he unofficially consults with a doctor on the condition that he not be locked up. So, the doctor gives him ten rules, or in Daniel's words, a decalogue, to obtain sobriety. Everything goes well at first, especially with Daniel cleaning up his apartment. And then Laura(Teresa Hurtado), a 15 year old runaway, shows up on his doorstep looking for her brother. "Astronautas" is a wild and partially animated look at a man trying to desperately put his life back together. As such, the movie has a circular structure, not unlike the vinyl records Daniel is very fond of. Not only does Daniel's world increase in size, starting from his apartment spinning outward, but at the same time we gradually learn his story.(When the movie uses the word 'poet,' I was thinking literally, not as a compliment.) Granted, the movie is also a little rough around the edges, and not just because of the less than pristine shape of the print used. And then just as everything is moving along so nicely, the movie ends, on a peculiar note to say the least.
