#1 / Wednesday 24 June, 2009 / 14:56 GMTI found this movie to be an interesting approach of the Russians' ambition to conquer space, however, too melodramatic and full of "old Soviet perfume". It was more interesting to explore the science of space, that took a lot of work for the Russians, rather than banal cliches of husband and wife's conflict. Maybe I expected more wit from the director, more sadness and more happiness. Overall, a good movie, but not really focused on a message.
