Not the worst Russian film........
7 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

Sure it's campy and it was hilarious on MST3K, but the story is rather atmospheric in the original version.

The main story is that a Ukrainian astronaut goes into space and he is weightless. Then, he stumbles upon a humanoid female (that resembles Annie Lennox of the "Eurythmics"),and then the fun will begin,such as burning a picture of ol' Gorby (possible anti-communism allegory here!).

You must either see this on MST3K or import the original version.
