Movie Info

This program on the history of the sun was the premier show at the opening of the IMAX theater in London in 2000. The production chronicles the story of the star upon which Earth depends for its existence. The spectacular photography illustrates the glory of the sun, including a close-up look at the tremendous power of sun spots, and their ability to disrupt life on Earth, millions of miles away. Ancient beliefs concerning the sun are contrasted with the latest findings of cutting-edge solar physics research in this homage to the sun. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi

A highly entertaining and educational picture of something to which most of us never give a second thought.

As imagens são espetaculares, mas o roteiro, mostrando-se excessivamente fascinado com os mitos e religiões relacionados ao Sol, abusa da locução floreada e piegas.

This is the sort of documentary that will leave some shaking their heads in awe and wonder.

During the 40-minute ride, we gain a new perspective on, and hopefully a fresh appreciation for, the natural world.

Everyone from hard-nosed rationalists to granola-munching mystics should find something to savor.

I thought I was back in grade school watching 'Our Mister Sun.'
