Trivia

The movie's running time of 108 minutes is exactly the same length of time it took for Yuri Gagarin's flight into space, orbit around the earth, and safe return to earth. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the scene where Yuri's father learns that his son has just flown in space (at 1 hour & 45 minutes) the camera pulls back as he walks away from the meeting hall. A boom mic is visible on the right hand side of the picture as it pans back. See more »

a fine biopic
9 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Is it propaganda? Yes in the same way as The Right Stuff or Apollo 13 are propaganda but this does not detract from the massive technical achievement of the Gagarin's flight.

At that moment the USSR was vastly in advance of US in space technology.

This would change but nothing can change the events of April 1961.

The film is very well made with breathtaking and realistic special effects and fine acting especially by Yaroslav Zhalnin... his Gagarin is intense intelligent and determined.

I imagine he an Neil Armstrong were cut form similar cloth.

Overall this film is a fine drama not afraid to discuss the political games in play.

Worth a view especially for anyone interested in space and as a antidote to the endless mindless CGI fueled science fiction we see in our cinemas.
