Andrei Tarkovsky's epic science fiction film is a cerebral yet sensuous study of memory and perception. Ground control has been receiving mysterious transmissions from the three remaining residents of a space station orbiting the planet Solaris. When cosmonaut and psychologist Kris Kelvin (Donatas Banionis) is dispatched to investigate the mysterious death of a doctor aboard the station, he soon discovers a certain dementia endemic to the cosmonauts who inhabit the vessel, wherein their repressed memories and obsessions are exhumed and reformed with haunting precision. With Solaris, legendary Russian filmmaker Tarkovsky created a brilliantly original science fiction classic that challenges our conceptions about love, truth and humanity itself. Based on Stanislaw Lem's startling novel. Winner of the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes Film Festival. (Fully subtitled)
