This short documentary, only 37 minutes long, wastes valuable minutes with at least four digressive segments about new robots R&D, instead of concentrating on its subject matter, which was supposed to be Isaac Asimov, his life and his books. The film seems only interested in robots and in Asimov's robot novels and stories, which is a very narrow approach and a serious limitation. His most famous series of books, the Foundation series, is not even mentioned. There is no analysis of most of his novels and short stories, except the ones directly dealing with robots. There is only a brief reference in passing to the many non-fiction books that Asimov wrote.
