When Apollo astronaut Gene Cernan stepped on the moon in December 1972 he left his footprints and his daughter's initials in the lunar dust. Only now, over forty years later, is he ready to share his epic but deeply personal story of fulfillment, love and loss. Cernan's burning ambition carried him from a quiet Chicago suburb to the spectacular and hazardous environment of space, and ultimately, to the moon. Five years in the making, The Last Man on the Moon unveils a wealth of rare archive, and takes Cernan back to the launch pads of Cape Kennedy, to Arlington National Cemetery and to his Texas ranch, where he finds respite from a past that refuses to let him go. Sharing home movies, scrapbooks and intimate moments with his closest friends and family, he brings his spine-tingling experiences to the big screen more vividly than any moonwalker has done before.

This film somehow manages to make it all fresh and exciting again. It does this by following one astronaut from early on right to now. Cernan is an ideal candidate because he is famously talkative about his experiences, but also because his missions cover all the details - Gemini, an Apollo non-landing test flight and 17 - which means that you can tell a lot of the story of the whole programme just through him. Where it really works though is the amount of time and care the film spends on Cernan now, on his reflections looking back. Like in the hit "In The Shadow Of The Moon", there's something deeply touching about seeing these heroes reflecting back on their lives from the perspective of old age, but this film takes that further by showing him chilling out with some friends and family. It's beautifully paced, affectionately personal without being too syrupy, informative, and moving.
The film is excellent. Gene Cernan comes across as surprisingly humble and grounded (no pun intended). The presentation is effective, the clips used appropriate and the contributions from friends, family and colleagues are very human. I'd recommend this to anyone because it's a human story and one of the important ones but for a student of Apollo it is essential. Be prepared to feel sad when Gene visits pad 39A though ...
All the better for it.One of the twelve is suprisingly humble throughout,did not expect to see Cernan so modest.
.Archive footage,some not seen before.Real human stuff
Region free.Image and sound are first rate.
