Interstellar expedition equipped by "pioneers"(soviet scouts) reached Alpha Kassiopea and found that smart robots took control on hole planet. Their only goal - to make happy , as they understand, their masters. Happines was, actually, sutisfactions of primitive needs, and removing "disturbing" emotions like love, responsebility etc. A many years ago they succeded to reach this goal and all aborigines died out. A very little amount of people escaped from "total happening" and their descendants orbiting the planet in a big orbital station for many generations. Brave soviet pioneers land on a planet, destroy robots and bring it back to their residentsWritten by
This movie was really good, the budget was much higher than I expected it for a 1974 soviet production.
The story was good, it wasn't really special but for people who like sci-fi this is a big piece of enjoyment.
The acting was good as well although it was a little strange to me that the protagonists were children.
They had some good ideas and realized them nicely for that time. It was fun to watch, especially the strange robots and their behavior. Of course there were logic-missing moments but it was OK, it didn't destroy the atmosphere or anything. The higher ranked robots really creeped me out because of their looks. The effects were not that good but enjoyable. The confrontation with the planets intelligence was really funny and me laugh some times. And it's a movie on a higher intellectual level or it at least tries to be which made it something special, something to appreciate. I already watched some soviet, polish and czech sci-fi movies and I think this one was probably the best, so give it a try.
