The wrapping of space background and its mystery, will be felt less for fans of space-themed films, because it does not provide surprises or philosophical alternative thoughts like in general films with similar themes. The film is purely about family drama and reunion between a child left by his father who is very dedicated to his work. so dedicated, that the boundary between fantasy and rational logic is blurred.
Not explained in detail anyway, whether the father based on what actually happened or just a mere hallucination, because it was too long in space.
