Trivia

Boris Strugatskiy, one of the authors of the original book, who did not write any scripts after his brother and co-author Arkadiy Strugatskiy died in 1991, refused to script the film but when Marina Dyachenko and Sergey Dyachenko, also Sci-Fi authors, were hired, he said, "They can't write a bad script." According to Fedor Bondarchuk, there were 28 versions of the script, all of which "were very close to the Strugatskys' text". See more »

Goofs

Red armored car, which Maxim steals near the final, was designed without a door. So the crew had to cut the hatch in the tank's plating. When Guy Gaal knocks the car, it can be seen that the hatch cover is actually made of wood. See more »

Too short! Film director cuts too much important parts of book.
12 March 2011 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Advice to all: read the book first. I found this movie as a good set of illustrations for book but sometimes we can see a little differences. E.g. under the book Maxim learns the native language by oneself and under the movie he puts "worm-gadget" into ear :-) Most of actors are well for his characters but not all IMHO Guy was showed too crazy. Arkadiy and Boris Strugatskiy are not only sci-fi writers. They are good thinkers too. And in each their book we can find a lot of thoughts. So I think that it was better to create a series of movies. And I even think that this movie should be remaked. At least it should be trilogy... A series of movies allows to save their thoughts and it also allows to remove any differences with book. I think film directors can cut something but they shouldn't add false episodes.

Finally I think that it is mediocre movie but a good set of illustrations. So (5 + 9) / 2 = 7 :-) My vote is seven.
