Storyline

Eight space cargo-ships disappear without a trace within three days. And the orbit station "Margot" has suddenly fallen silent. The space council is faced with a mystery and the scientist in charge, Maria Scholl, sees no other solution than ordering a total flight stop to this mysterious sector of space. Her colleague, Prof. Tal seems to be suspicious since he knows things before they are even released. A forbidden look into his personal file brings to light that Tal was part of the Eolomea project that never found approval of the commission in charge. Written by DEFA Film Library

Eastern bloc sci-fi
27 January 2015 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Herrmann Zschoche's "Eolomea" is an OK, not great sci-fi flick. It contains material similar to what we saw in "2001" and "Solaris", but doesn't have the philosophical content inherent in those two. I guess that East Germany wanted to try out the genre, so they made this adaptation of an Angel Wagenstein screenplay. It's about an investigation into the disappearance of some spaceships. There's some jumping back and forth, and even a few scenes that look filmed in a Mediterranean country, so it gets confusing at times. Nonetheless, I thought that it was an OK movie. The movie won't be for everyone, but most people are bound to enjoy the robot scene.
