Someone (the name unfortunately escapes me now) said about James Joyce's "Finnegans Wake": "It is not about something, it is that something itself." For me, that goes with Solaris as well; I'm not in need of a "go-ahead-plot" or rather, that plot holds no real importance if the overall mood of the work sucks you in like Solaris did. Hypnotizing.
Some people I know complain about the lack of action in the film, I say to them there is lot of action there, but you'll have to tune in first. The action's really in your head.
I found Solaris' "something" obviously in the last scene, the taxi drive scene, and in the beautiful nature shots.
As with today's music, 99% of today's cinema is pure depressing shite. Finding exceptions to the rule like Solaris makes the search worth it.
