This film is great. It shines on so many levels!! Dear film makers of today, please stop! Don't make movies anymore. You don't have anything to say and even if you had you wouldn't know how. Make money elsewhere. Write books or game scenarios. Take photos. Shoot commercials. Or just go to the bar to get drunk and bother barman. He is getting paid for it. Nobody else should spend money for your failures anymore.
Man cheats on dead wife with lady who saw him on "Real World: Moscow". Lady is from Mars, where they are fond of geometric designs, and they still have slavery. Romance doesn't work out ultimately because absolute power corrupts absolutely. Long live the proletariat! What's up with that FBI warning! Are they trying to stop me from becoming a commie?
This film has some remarkable features. Especially the futuristic costume and set design of the Martian sequences is astonishing. Of course its funny to watch the revolutionary pathos today, and after all there are some slightly ironic moments like the figure of the detective which help to overcome it.
D'une beauté et d'une ambivalence totale, l'émotion que ce film atypique suscite montre qu'il est possible, au delà de la propagande (ou vision du monde?), de faire une oeuvre d'art véritable. Son final qui témoigne bien de cette nature bicéphale - les aspirations spatiales soviétiques ne le démentiront pas. C'est parfois au plus près d'un léviathan que l'on peut trouver une liberté authentique, infime et fragile.
