Out of the Present within the cinematic world
20 June 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Though I already knew that Out of the Present has cult status, I was surprised to recognize how highly estimated this film is within the cinematic world. I'd like to share the comments with you that struck me most and as I think this is worth knowing for everyone who has seen this piece of artwork or – which I really recommend you - has intention to do so.

For example Kees Brienen, a Programme Adviser at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, in an interview mentioned it among the five movies he would take to a lonely island. Marc Caro, famous comic-strip artist and film director, actually says that to him the MIR space station "is Out of the Present, the great documentary by Andrei Ujica." He finds that Sergei Krikalev's stay and his living the "political changes from above there, is an hallucinating issue". While Marina Azcarate talked about the film and its reception when she was a jury member of Cannes Junior in 1997. Not only was she obviously deeply impressed herself by the movie as well as by the encounter with director Andrei Ujica and cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev, but she also refers to Tim Burton, who in the same year was member of the main jury in Cannes, calling it simply "great".

These people surely know what they are talking about and their valuing Out of the Present so much is quite an interesting background.
