About this movie

Ground control has been receiving mysterious transmissions from the three remaining residents of the Solaris space station. When cosmonaut and psychologist Kris Kelvin is dispatched to investigate, he experiences the same strange phenomena that afflict the Solaris crew, sending him on a voyage into the darkest recesses of his consciousness. With Solaris, the legendary Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky created a brilliantly original science-fiction epic that challenges our conceptions about love, truth, and humanity itself.

A deeply affecting movie that displays the human experience in a universal way. Andrei Tarkovsky's vision of Stanislaw Lem's literary science fiction masterpiece is futuristic but remains grounded in the human experience. One cannot help but feel deeply for Kelvin and the emotional turmoil he experiences in a cruel no-win situation where objectivity becomes impossible. The cinematography is among the finest and most beautiful in the history of cinema.

One of the greatest films ever made. Story, acting, cinematography; a nightmarish and fantastical science fiction masterpiece.

A jewel in cinema's most lauded crown. Tarkovsky is among the greatest artists of any medium, of any epoch. A must-see for any film lover.
