THE STRANGE FRONTIERS OF ANDREI TARKOVSKY
SOLARIS
SOLARIS
1972, Janus Films, 167 min, Soviet Union, Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky

Based on the novel by Stanislaw Lem, this is probably director Andrei Tarkovsky’s best-known film and far more than just a science fiction epic. Like Kubrick’s 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, Tarkovsky takes an intellectual approach to metaphysical issues. Scientists try to understand the secrets of the mysterious planet Solaris but find themselves slowly becoming victims of their own imaginations and secret desires. Remade 30 years later with George Clooney in the lead role, this thought-provoking original version stars Donatas Banionis, Natalya Bondarchuk and Jüri Järvet.


In Russian and German with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP.
