Loosely based on the philosophical sci-fi novel by Stanisław Lem. A psychologist is sent to a space station orbiting a distant planet, due a mysterious mental breakdown of it’s crew. An excellent introduction to the poetic cinema of Andrey Tarkovsky.
A subtle, mystifying mood slowly guides the viewer into philosophical discourse – all achieved through masterful and meticulous cinematography. An unnerving and surreal atmosphere.
Thought-provoking, deep and stimulatory. A philosophical exploration deep into human consciousness and psyche. A psychological and anthropological look into love and attachment.
A great representation of the power of cinema and it’s many variations. The plot is loosely adapted from Lem’s original novel, the film being co-written by Tarkovsky himself.
Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes Film Festival.
