This remarkable science fiction film is a milestone in Soviet cinema. Solaris, adapted from a novel by Polish writer Stanislav Lem, is one of those rare screen works which improves upon and deepens its literary source. The story follows a cosmonaut/psychologist sent on a mission to a remote space station to investigate the strange transmissions sent by its crew. There he experiences an astonishing interior journey into memories and the very nature of humanity. "I find it one of the most original, most poetic, most beautifully paced science fiction movies I've ever seen" (Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice). In Russian with English Subtitles.
