Compelling psychological sci-fi classic - Solaris review by Mr Aquarium

Spoiler Alert
29/09/2021

Not for Star Wars fans; this is claustrophobic, at times positively unsettling, [one "resurrection" scene will stay with you for some time...] yet uses the sci-fi setting to focus on the main character's relationships. Possibly the most quietly intelligent sci-fi film ever made? Better than the later US remake. Curiously, for this Brit at least, the Russian ambiance adds to the otherworldliness of the film.
