A very nice movie, much better then what I expected. The story is really enjoyable, being a merger of the 'pulp science fictionish' feel of the first half of the 20th century space exploration with documentary about the iron reality of the early Soviet communist era.
This 'mock documentary' is well done, but is somewhat 'unfinished' - not yet ready for release. Quite a few questions remain completely unanswered - and although it adds to the mystery, I think I'd appreciate it more if the documentary would at least comment on itself
why it didn't answer all the questions.
The movie reminds me of Japanese anime 'The Wings of Honneamise' - so if you liked one, do see the other.
