    For being a space film, "First Man" is extremely down-to-earth. Oscar winner Damien Chazelle places us right next to the astronauts who are about to become the first humans on the moon. - Elias Björkman

    I've never really cared much about astronauts and their adventures, but I became very engaged by "First Man". - Jan-Olov Andersson

    "First Man" is a charged and beautiful film about dreams, love, grief, and reconciliation. But it is also a film about escape and literally traveling to the moon to find home again. - Jonna Vanhatalo

    "First Man" treats Neil Armstrong and the moon landing in a refreshingly factual and non-patriotic manner. - Wanda Bendjelloul

    Instead of giving us the overview, the audience is strapped into the same seat as Armstrong in a dark, shaky space capsule while the G-forces tear apart the metal around it. - Jakob Åsell

    What could have become a display of patriotism becomes in Chazelle's hands a personal story about the individual's adversities and drive. - Rasmus Torstensson

    It must be seen by everyone who is fascinated by space, the Apollo program, and humankind's ability to achieve goals that initially seem impossible.

    A large, long and conventional thing whose biggest problem you don't need a doctoral hat in film studies to perceive: It's quite dreary. - Fredrik Sahlin
