Eccentric scientist Dr.Daniel and his shy, clumsy assistant Max, lead a quiet life on their space station where they carry out illegal research into androids, until they receive an unwelcome visit from three fugitives from justice, one of whom is female. Dr.Daniel and Max are both interested in her, but one of them has rather more sinister intentions than just romance. At first, they all get along, but when one of the criminals becomes psychotic, violence erupts. Meanwhile, the space police is on their trail.Written by

The pneumatic air-hiss of the doors opening and closing was created by the sound effects editor, who aimed a can of compressed air into a five-gallon plastic water jug. He would pull the tube of the air nozzle out of the jug while pressing the button, which produced the doors' sound. See more »

One of my favourites! The film has a haunting quirkiness about it. Klaus Kinski is the perfect mad scientist. The MAX404 android really projects his confusion about and desire to understand his emotions. Loved the soundtrack. This movie is not for those who only like those big Hollywood "sci-fi" films. It will appeal to those who enjoy REAL sci-fi though.
