Anything involving Pavel Juracek raises by curiosity. This now ranks as one of my most favourite sci-fi films, given that my familiarity with the genre is minimal. Not a reworking by any means like say Godard's 'Alphaville', the film revels in residing comfortably within the skin of the genre.
A WONDERFUL representation of early sci-fi, with a very unique, realistic story, great visuals heightened by wonderful cinematography, a compelling soundtrack, and a KILLER ending. Each character gets an adequate amount of development as well. This may have been made on a budget, but this is not what I consider a B-movie. A must watch! Enjoy!
