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

Fedorov suggests that they drink alcohol to warm up. As alcohol is a depressant, it would have actually lowered their body temperatures. While, relatively speaking, it would have felt slightly warmer, the reduction in their body heat in such circumstances would be potentially dangerous. See more »

Very Good
4 December 2017 | by Dreamer1987See all my reviews

This movie really was surprising.The special effects(better than "Gravity" in my opinion),the accuracy of portraying the technology of the time,the soundtrack,the camera work.It's a space- thriller inspired by real events (you can search the mission soyuz t13 or look for documentaries about the salyut 7 to find out that very few moments were actually modified).Unlike the movie "Gravity" physics are respected,so it's spectacular but has that "apollo 13" feeling (with less cheesy moments or fake dialogues),except for the first 20 minutes we spend the rest of the time in space with the cosmonauts trying to repair the salyut 7 and survive to all the unexpected problems.I was never bored until the end.Some people say that the movie has propaganda,not true ,like in a lot of American movies cosmonauts and scientist are the good guys and generals want to save their reputation and the reputation of the country ,it's a pattern we have seen in a lot of Hollywood movies.The movie shows respect to all space heroes ,even the American astronauts and the shuttle program in a particular moment.If you liked  "Apollo 13","The Martian","Interstellar","Gravity" you will love this movie,it feels and looks more real (some scenes are actually filmed for real like the breathtaking launch sequence).All actors are good and human.I hope the bluray will also be released in 3d (in Russia it was an IMAX 3d release). I give it a 8,5.
