Storyline

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

A beautiful film, don't listen to the naysayers
29 August 2013 | by cope650See all my reviews

I'm going to keep this short and sweet, as I rarely go out of my way to review on IMDb, but this movie has a ~5/10 currently. That is RIDICULOUS.

This movie is beautiful, as another reviewer said, almost like poetry. It had enough sci-fi in it to satisfy the science nerd in me, yet how the film impacted me from an emotional standpoint is where it really hits home.

Watch this movie. It's certainly open to some interpretation, but I thought it was almost majestic (some scenes, for sure), and is definitely worth a watch. It's disgusting that this movie isn't reviewed higher, it was better than 90% of films I see.
