Slow, thoughtful and certainly not for everyone, Andrei Tarkovskys psychological drama is one of Russian cinemas crowning achievements. The action takes place on a space station in orbit around a planet called Solaris.
A psychologist has just entered the space station to find out what went wrong to the prior crew members, but he soon falls victim to increasingly frustrating hallucinations. Can a planet really use its energy to make people materialise? Solaris is one of those films that succeeds by presenting questions and never answering them, by which point youre already drawn in.
