Definitely a thinking man's science fiction film whose intellect sacrifice none of the science nor none of the fiction.
The plot utilizes the fantasy element of the genre to delve intricately into themes of the pysche such as regret, love, pi... read more

In "Solaris" Russian director glances from the cosmos to the earth, to man. Tarkovsky does not make a trip "to infinity and beyond", but to the inner world of man. "I consider it my duty to encourage reflection on the specifically human and the eternal that lives within each of us," wrote Tarkovsky. It is no coincidence nor a matter of "resources", that special effects have been reduced to a minim... read more

I looked up the review for this in an old movie guide I used to use (Video Hound) and I was surprised that it gave it a fairly low rating. It focused on a negative comparison with 2001 and complained that there was too much talking in the film. This strikes me as a strong indication of cultural bias, as thought the Russians weren't allowed to have their own investigation of memory and the symbolic... read more

The Solaris mission has established a base on a planet that appears to host some kind of intelligence, but the details are hazy and very secret. After the mysterious demise of one of the three scientists on the base, the main character is sent out to replace him. He finds the station run-down and the two remaining scientists cold and secretive. When he also encounters his wife who has been dead for seven years, he begins to appreciate the baffling nature of the alien intelligence.

"08.07.2015 Lienee niin, että olen täysin kajahtanut, koska anna tälle vain kolme ja puoli tähteä. Jotenkin keskittymiseni on taas vaihteeksi ollut vaikeaa, enkä juurikaan saa katsottua mitään järkevää. Ainakaan sillä tavoin, että saisin niistä kaiken mahdollisen irti. Sanottakoon kuitenkin, että Solaris on hyvä elokuva, jossa on mielenkiintoista kuvastoa, teemoja ja vähäeleisyyttä."
