  2. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    The plot on earth is muddled; but the stuff on Mars, especially when the earth people come there, is brilliant. Though, the version showed here on Mubi in September/October 2016 doesn't seem to be the complete version.

  3. Darko's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    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.

  4. RinwaldHaze69's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    Can someone kindly explain to me why the runtime claims the film is 120 minutes long, while in fact it runs for 80 minutes? I'm confused.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    >>> Une œuvre que l'on peut considérer comme moyenne, voire mineure, mais qui étonne et détonne par rapport aux réalisations de l'époque ! www.cinefiches.com

  8. Morten Halskov Jensen's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    Set 1. april. Unik historie om socialistisk revolution på Mars.

  9. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

  10. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    Groovy costumes and head gear. Communism on mars too.

  11. wax@waxsm.com.au's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    5 stars for the extraordinary Constructivist sets and costumes in the Mars sequences. Worth spooling through to find them.

  12. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    It is a Tolstoy-sized saga after all, but well worth it, with incredible sets in Mars, and the whole dynamic of Social Revolution expansionism across the universe... priceless!

  13. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    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?

  14. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    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.

  15. Enrico Gaudenzi's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    Documento per la vita quotidiana dell'URSS pre Stalin + effetti delle avanguardie russe sul cinema degli anni Venti. Ancora interessante

  16. Jean-Go's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    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.

  17. ADZERTY's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    Ce film nous apporte bien la preuve que le cinéma d'action contemporain, épique et vaguement propagandiste, à la Stargate, n'a absolument rien inventé. J'apprécie en plus ici le charme désuet qui rappelle Méliès (c'est son voyage sur la Lune, où je Mabuse ?)

  18. Anne-Sophie Bruttmann's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    incroyable et flamboyant film de SF soviétique; propagande ou lutte contre le pouvoir ? esthetiquement merveilleux.

  19. affasf's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    Science fiction novelty can’t surpass the everlasting Russian devotion to political claim.

  20. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

  21. Máté Csóka's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    Woow, I didn't expected such a postmodern, twin peaksian thing from 1924.

  22. Christofer Pierson's rating of the film Aelita: Queen of Mars

    An overlooked early Soviet masterpiece--strange but delightful mixture of social comedy, melodrama and adventure fantasy.
