But in telling a story that is central to understanding modern Chile, Guzman fails to show a similar interest in the fascinating astronomical world he is granted access to. Instead, we are treated to pretty pictures of stars, and talking heads of astronomers telling us what they *feel* about things - the meaning of life, the souls of the stolen generation - rather than what they actually *know* about things. The effects of Chile's hated junta are perhaps still not talked about enough in that country, with people urged to forget and forgive despite the heinous crimes perpetrated there. But that is no excuse to make such a lightweight film about another intriguing topic - that of the exploration of the cosmos at the heart of the bleak, majestic Atacama.
