6-grader Kolya Gerasimov discovers a time machine in a basement of an old house in Moscow and gets transferred into the 21st century. There he is allowed to look around. Accidentally, Kolya witnesses two space pirates who arrive from Saturn and later try to steal a device called a "Mielophone" (which can read thoughts) from Alisa Seleznyova - a girl that performs experiments with this device and animals. Kolya manages to save the device from the pirates and brings it back to the 20th century. But both pirates and Alisa get there too. Alisa knows where Kolya studies but doesn't know what he looks like. Pirates saw Kolya, but don't know anything about him. Written by Boris Shafir <shafir@hsi.com>

User Reviews

A sixth grader accidentally discovers a time machine.
14 March 2001 | by tenant-2See all my reviews

This film is an excellent example of how a touching and an exciting story could be told without the use of extravagant special effects. It is endearing in it's simplicity, full of humanity and wonder. This film, which I saw in the Soviet Union in 1984 (when it was first released)touched me very deeply. To this day, I remember watching it every time it was shown on television and when the last of the 5 series ended, I couldn't wait to see it again. It has been a great inspiration and is one of the reasons that I am pursuing a career in filmmaking. I wish that more of American films, especially those for children, were made with so much heart. In the U.S., it is available through Russian video stores, specifically in Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, NY. Unfortunately, they are not subtitled. The music in the film, particulary the theme song "Prekrasnoye Daleko" ("A Wonderful Far-Away")is equally as touching and beautiful as the film itself. It could be found on Napster.
