Italian remake of 'A For Andromeda'
14 December 2001 | by (West Sussex, England) – See all my reviews

This production is of interest to non-Italian speakers probably for one reason only: it is an Italian remake of the BBC's classic science fiction series 'A For Andromeda'. It's interest lies in the fact that only about 20 minutes of the original series now remains in the BBC's archives, the rest having been wiped in their purge of old programmes in the late 1960's and early 1970's.

This is apparently available on video, so perhaps the ideal solution is to first read the book 'A For Andromeda' by Fred Hoyle and John Elliott (a great book in its own right), and then sit down and watch this. Then it might be possible to imagine just how amazing the original series must have been.

I don't speak Italian, so I can't comment on the cast interaction, but it certainly looks faithful to the original, and for that we must be truly thankful. How strange, though, that they didn't bother to remake the second part of the series, 'The Andromeda Breakthrough'.
