What if you got back home - and there was nobody there? In 1975, the first Soviet cosmonaut on the Moon is unable to make his way back and is declared missing in Space. However, through ghostly radio messages, he claims to have come back to Earth and found it empty, not a living soul. His unrealistic presence and his voice will little by little destroy the world of his beloved ones. Written by Official synopsis

Really enjoyed this movie. Very thought-provoking, adult theme.
10 July 2013 | by fbyrd99See all my reviews

"The Cosmonaut" was very well done, well acted and well thought out. It is not the the typical "Iron Man" blow up stuff movie, but was really good. Don't look for The Hulk to drop down and explain everything to you. There is a fair amount of beauty, magic, love and science here. It reminded me of Kubrick's "2001 A Space Odyssey", Demi Moore in "Ghost", and Bruce Willis in "The Sixth Sense". The adult situations and relationships are beautifully done. No campy stuff here. There are light- hearted moments, but much is of a serious nature. Training for space is a "no joking matter", for the Cosmonauts, and for their loved ones. I watched "The Cosmonaut" twice, and listened to the beautifully haunting music through the extended credits. Great job. I should really rate the movie a "9".
