- I’m not going to lie, I was exhausted and fell asleep briefly somewhere in the middle. I’d feel shame about that but the woman a couple of seats down the row was sawing logs like there was no tomorrow.

- As I am insensitive, this didn’t do much for me. I liked it all right but in terms of emotional connections, it left me a little cold. The connections between the astronomers and the relatives of the Disappeared seemed a little tenuous; that one woman they interviewed worked as an astronomer and was the daughter of two of Pinochet’s victims seemed like too convenient a way to tie the two stories together. There are similar thematic concerns for each group of people (the search for understanding, for origin; the piecing together of stories through artifacts from the past, etc.) but I don’t think the stories were woven together tightly enough.
- That’s about it.
