Storyline

The year is 1985. The unmanned Soviet space station Salyut 7, which is in low Earth orbit, suddenly stops responding to commands from the Control Center. If the space station - the pride of Soviet space engineering - falls from the sky, not only will it damage the image of the country, it could also be a disaster bringing untold casualties. To investigate the failure and prevent the catastrophe, people must be sent to the station. Yet no one in history has ever attempted to dock an uncontrolled vehicle in space. To this day, this mission is considered to be the most technically challenging in the history of space exploration. Written by CTB.ru

Goofs

At the briefing scene a concern that the Americans may intercept the uncontrolled space station and obtain military secrets is repeatedly stated. In reality the Salyut carried no military secrets as it was a civilian installation. If the Americans wanted military secrets, they should've gone after Almaz, the today little known military version of the Salyut, also in orbit at the time. Such an emergency never happened to the Almaz though. See more »

admirable work
30 October 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A film who could have many names, from propaganda to biopic. Significant is the inspired storytelling , the technical work, the performances and nuances and precise build of dramatism. A film who seems, in many points, better than last space films made USA. . Because, it has something defining the characters and situations and tension escaping to demonstration, reminding the essence of humanity. And this detal represents, sure, for me, in profound subjective perspective, a huge virtue.
