Andrei Tarkovsky Soviet Union, 1972

Lintang A.'s rating of the film Solaris

"Solyaris" is an original approach to first contact and alien life-form in the cinema history. The story is disclosed in an extremely low-pace through a flawed screenplay that uses many ellipsis and poor art decoration, but beautifully raises philosophical questions about love, death, understanding, communication, fear for the unknown, origin of life, and might be the Paradise or even God. 9.5/10
