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

Easter egg: At 1:03:16 after cosmonauts have measured their body temperatures and stowed thermometers into medical cabinet, a book by Viktor Savinykh "Salyut-7, diaries from the dead station" released in 2017 is seen tucked behind the medicine cabinet. See more »


In the restaurant scene Dzhanibekov's wife says that Gorbachev has ordered an alcohol prohibition. Later this is also discussed on board of Salyut, with reference to cops, implying that drinking alcohol may result in arrest. Gorbachev initially didn't prohibit alcohol, only cut back production and distribution. See more »

"Appollo 13" meets "Gravity"
28 March 2018 | by jakubpasSee all my reviews

I watched it recently on HBO GO. I've seen it accidentally, never heard of that movie before. I must said I did not expected it to be so good. Very good camera, special effects, SGI, science consulting and so on. You can't really tell where the SGI was used at all. Very good acting and story. I don't know exactly how close the story was to original events. I assume it had to be a little exaggerated but it's ok for me. I guess it could be a little shorter for average audience. The only unrealistic scene was Challenger flyby so close to Salyut-7 crew so they can actually see and (nomen omen) "salute" to the russian cosmonauts. Too hollywood to me.
