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

Sad but beautiful piece of artwork
18 June 2013 | by gabriel-tandilSee all my reviews

While not what I expected to see, I liked.

It is closer to poetry than to traditional film, and I expected more emphasis on the characters and the story.

It's a beautiful job well done, in my opinion, despite a large sadness in its content, but I will not reveal details of the plot so I will say no more.

Sometimes I feel like hard to follow considering the changes in the Timeline, which anyway does not prevent understanding of the work.

Otherwise it's a movie out of the ordinary (as planned: crow-funding, Spanish production spoken in English and filmed in Russia, etc.).

The places are very interesting and the environment, in my opinion very well done. It also has a good soundtrack.
