Our take

Tarkovsky’s metaphysical wonder is rightly considered one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. Based on Stanisław Lem’s cult 60s novel, Solaris journeys deep into space, and deeper still into the realms of the subconscious. A trippy psychological masterpiece that once seen, is never forgotten.
