Storyline

In 2270, Earth is completely depleted and no one lives there anymore. Those that have money move to Rhea; but most of the population lives in orbit in space stations. Dr. Laura Portmann decides to work in the cargo ship Kassandra in an eight year travel to Station 42 that is in orbit of RH278 to raise money to meet her sister Arianne in Rhea. They keep in touch with each other, but their messages take three years to reach the other. Laura joins Captain Pierre Lacroix and his crew composed by the First Officer Anna Lindbergh; Communication Officer Miyuki Yoshida and Igor Prokoff and Claudio Vespucci. The Sky Marshall Samuel Decker joins the team since the terrorist group Luddites, led by Klaus Bruckner, is bombing the stations. Lacroix organizes shifts of eight and half months for each crew-member while the others rest in cryogenic sleep. Three years and eight months later, Laura finds that there is apparently a stowaway in the cargo compartments and Decker and Lacroix are awakened to ...

Trivia

As Dr. Portmann leaves the examination room after tending to Decker's head wound, a THC molecule is clearly seen on a computer screen in the background. Below this is a structure of amphetamine. See more »

Goofs

At no point during its 4 year journey does the Kassandra "flip" over. Any reaction engine powered space ship would accelerate for around half of its journey (or until terminal velocity is reached), then turn around and decelerate to arrive at its destination at a sensible velocity. See more »

A wonderful and touching movie ...
8 October 2009 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Without spoiling anything, I want to recommend this movie as a real thriller where nothing is as it seems, but everything makes sense in the end. And it is a fresh look on a VERY IMPORTANT issue, giving a wonderful but sad perspective on it.

If you like "big thinking" in SciFi, this movie will give you the visuals on how huge things can get in zero gravity, with a beautiful space city in the beginning and a cargo ship the size of the empire state building.

While it is a little bit lengthy, I think this is a necessary part to truly give you the cold and lonely feeling of space, and so to make you appreciate the ending and conclusion.

Just keep sitting, and you will understand ...

Laszlo
