Lost beauty
6 November 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is a classic of sci-fi for my generation. We did not get a chance to watch Star Wars or Star Trek. We watched Moskva-Kassiopeya many times for its strong context, great adventure and clever dialogues. It has right mix of comedy and suspense, good characters and very strong plot.

This adventure tells a story of a group of young astronauts freeing civilization of one of the planets in constellation Kassiopeya from the empire of artificial intelligence - robots.

I may never see this movie again in my life. It's a pity that it is probably considered as an obsolete piece of the soviet propaganda. I never felt this from this movie and who has seen some masterpieces from soviet cinematography knows that all of them criticize regime in a very effective way.

Moskva-Kassiopeya is a great movie for all ages.
