‘Two love affairs – between a man and a woman, and a man and the moon; the action takes place between the time the first astronauts land on the moon and the premature cancellation of the Apollo programme. An extended visual metaphor in which the moon is filmed with the intensity one normally reserves for photographing the face, and the human body is filmed as if it were landscape or moonscape.
”’It was as if the moon came closer than it ever had before; there was a breath of air as it approached, and as it passed it lightly brushed the surface of the earth. And what had seemed familiar when distant was now close and strange…'” – P.B.
