The Sandy Frank version (Humanoid Woman) has a new credits sequence that uses Americanized names for the main cast and crew (Richard Viktorov becomes Richard Victor, Kir Bulychyov becomes Kir Brown, Yelena Metyolkina becomes Helen Metelkine, and so on). Oddly, the actual characters in the film retain their original character names. See more »
A bit long but worth seeing. The story of Kir Bulychyov and Richard Viktorov is interesting and honorable by the same Richard Viktorov along with Nikolay Viktorov. It made me think of Tarkovski, "Solaris" and "Stalker". Yelena Metyolkina is impeccable in the role of the Niyya clone. And all the other actors are very credible and convincing. The film has a little humor, thanks to several characters. The decorations and the costumes are very well done. And Aleksey Rybnikov's music is super special.
