Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky's psychological sci-fi classic has an equally unique and hauntingly alien score, an electronic soundscape by composer Eduard Artemiev.

Based on the classic sci-fi novel by Stanislaw Lem, this is probably director Andrei Tarkovsky’s best known film and far more than just a science fiction epic. As in Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, Tarkovsky takes an intellectual approach to metaphysical issues. Scientists try to understand the secrets of the mysterious planet Solaris, but find themselves slowly becoming victims of their own imaginations and secret desires.

RU, 1972, Colour, 167min., Rated PG, Dir. Andrei Tarkovsky
