First of all- this rare to find Soviet film stands apart from the many others sci fi movies of that time in the USSR. It deals with the idea, that some real people could get immoratlity by means of controlling the time periods inside the special lab-city called "Vechnost". They look like people but they are trained to work for Vechnost forever, as a part of its mechanism. They correct time holes,help people from other time to solve their problems by means of special mind- operating system.
Everyone from Vechnost is immortal and they live in a very futuristic looking like place in the center of time , but some periods of time blocked from them, so two engineers are sent to solve the problem.
As soon as The main character falls in love the operation goes wrong-this causes the destruction of the lab by people from some other time.
The woman turns out to be fake-love, a spy, who was sent to disorganize Vechnost .
Very moody and hypnotic film. I liked it more than "Solaris"
