Storyline

Alexander, a lone cosmonaut, is adrift in orbit around Earth. He has lost communications and life-support systems are dwindling fast. At the same time in Italy, a radio engineer is working the night shift. He discovers a voice amidst the empty static. It is Alexander's emergency transmission, carried across space from his dying capsule. Over one night these two men are bonded, but their new found friendship, might not last the night.

Do not go gentle into that good night
7 April 2016 | by GrandeMargueriteSee all my reviews

This is an awesome short movie. I don't know anything about the director nor the actors, but I was blown away when I first saw it. I have rarely seen something that powerful, beautiful, moving and profound.

A Soviet cosmonaut is floating adrift in his capsule, waiting for the death to come. One of his desperate calls for rescue is picked up by an Italian radio engineer and the two men form a bond in a very special way, as memories are unfolding in the cosmonaut's mind... There's a lot that I could write about "Into the silent sea", but my only recommendation is "just watch it!". Depending on how you feel when you watch it, "Into the silent sea" will affect you in many ways. This fine thesis film (yes, it was made by a grad student!) won a dozen -- well-deserved -- awards around the world.
