To differentiate between original version and restored version "A New Version" subtitle is added to the title shot.The music was re-recorded, and most ADR was redone with surviving actors. The existing special effects were refined. New effects envisioned in the script that were not possible in 1979 created. The story and dialog were streamlined, and resulting cuts amounted to almost 25 minutes. The opening and closing titles were completely re-shot. See more »
A bit long but worth seeing. The story of Kir Bulychyov and Richard Viktorov is interesting and honorable by the same Richard Viktorov along with Nikolay Viktorov. It made me think of Tarkovski, "Solaris" and "Stalker". Yelena Metyolkina is impeccable in the role of the Niyya clone. And all the other actors are very credible and convincing. The film has a little humor, thanks to several characters. The decorations and the costumes are very well done. And Aleksey Rybnikov's music is super special.
