Yugoslavian Sci-Fi with the sense of humour
25 May 2016 | by aleksandarsarkicSee all my reviews

Cinematography of Ex-Yugoslavia was really big and strong but it hadn't many sci-fi movies, "Visitors from The Arkana Galaxy " or Gosti Iz Galaksije on Serbo-Croatian was only sci-fi movie produced in Ex-Yugoslavia. I was really curious to see this movie because it is made in a country in which i was born, and i was really delighted when i finally seen it. Yes effects are kind of trashy and look like they are from the 60's but somehow it gave movie special vibe. Story is also nice and very imaginative, the biggest plus for me in the movie is humour, Yugoslavian humour is something unique, it is twisted and dark but it is what i really like. Also i must say ladies in this movie just look perfect especially Czech actress Ksenia Prohaska, she plays one of the main characters alien-android Andra, i fell in love really. This movie is really a must for all lovers of weird and retro science fiction.

My grade: 7/10.
