    I have the long version in German with English subtitles. i don't speak German but I think the movie works best in German, not dubbed into English.

    Yes, fiction aside, the real thing would probably have required the sun to be just below the horizon to see the brighter planets and navigational stars, even with that telescope. This wouldn’t have been good for filming, so I suppose the film version had to be a compromise.  I’ve always wanted a copy of the video.  I found the music haunting.  I thought I was getting a really good deal when I bought a copy really cheaply near the north end of the Fasterbokanalen in Sweden.  Unfortunately, when I got home and put it on the player, it turned out to have sub-titles in Swedish.  I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised.  Dave
