Los Angeles: Filmmaker James Cameron has called Alfonso Cuaron`s `Gravity` the best space film ever made.

The `Avatar` director praised Cuaron`s vision for the new thriller, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as a pair of astronauts who become separated from their craft during a routine mission, reported Variety.

"I was stunned, absolutely floored. I think it`s the best space photography ever done, I think it`s the best space film ever done, and it`s the movie I`ve been hungry to see for an awful long time," Cameron said.

"What is interesting is the human dimension. Alfonso and Sandra working together to create an absolutely seamless portrayal of a woman fighting for her life in zero gravity," he added.
