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.
