5.0 out of 5 stars a great movie for the whole family, 17 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Gwiazda Kopernika: Jak wstrzymal slonce i ruszyl ziemie? (DVD)
Gwiazda Kopernika is an animated feature film about Nicolas Copernicus, one of the most famous Poles that ever lived. Copernicus was an astronomer and mathematician that changed the world with his idea that the Earth was not the center of the universe and that the Earth revolved around the sun, not the other way around.

This is a great movie for the whole family. My kids and I were very entertained with this film as it has two levels of humor. There are the simple funny things that will make kids laugh out loud when they see them and there is the more sophisticated humor that the kids don't get but the adults will enjoy.

This cartoon is fabulous because it makes history and culture appealing to kids. Creating a story about a scholar that goes to universities to study and discusses intellectual things in an interesting way is no easy feat. There are also a few dilemmas and obstacles. Copernicus is faced with learning about astronomy or astrology, as an alchemist tries to persuade Copernicus to join him on his quest to discover the philosopher's stone. Copernicus also falls in love with a girl, but the alchemist challenges his fate with her. The whole story isn't strictly factual, as it also mixes in some magic such as a reoccurring dream Copernicus has showing him as a boy riding a chariot in the sky along with his father.

One thing I really like about this movie is that it reminds us that people of the day think they are so smart, but really have something wrong about what they think is the truth. In every age, people look back at those that came before them and think they were somehow backwards in some of their thinking, never realizing future generations will think the same about them. Yes, even today people think they now have everything figured out and are so much wiser than those that came before them. At least some of us know better. And who knows, some ideas of the past that are dismissed by scholars today just might turn out to be true as well.
