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>

Some details on the series, the novel, and the author.
6 March 2001 | by bigger-2See all my reviews

I recently acquired the three tapes to this five part TV series from Souvenir, a company in New York. It's based on Kir Bulychev's [note that for his books the name is transcribed with an 'e,' which you will understand if you know Russian and which doesn't matter if you don't. My reasons are that I have translated his novel 'Poselek [The Settlement]' into English and published it under the title 'Those Who Survive,' as an on-demand book from Xlibris, and 'Sto let tomy nazad' will be the 4th or 5th book in the series to come out in about two years. And yes, I have a contract with the author.

The series original title means something like 'Back to the Future,' and it is deservedly a cult classic. Natasha Gromova became a star (with tons of fan mail, much of it addresed 'To Alice, Moscow', and stalkers!), appeared in three other films (two not listed in the data base) and left acting when they wanted her for nude roles. She is now married and a research biologist, and recently appeared at RusCon, a Russian SF con in Moscow, to award the prize for best children's work, called the 'Alice.' She is, as an adult, stunning.

A second Alice film was made from 'The Lilac Ball,' another of Bulychev's novels, but was not as successful. I will have comments on that film in that topic. Also, the novel 'Alice's Travels' was turned into 'Secret of the Third Planet,' a very good animated cartoon. The English translation of that should be out by May.
