Audience Reviews for Aelita - Queen of Mars

  • Oct 18, 2013
    Science fiction about a trip to Mars from the glorious Soviet Socialists Republics wherein a science noodler with marriage problems longs for a better life abroad ... way, way abroad. Despite being released in 1929 everything has stood the test of time very well. The acting is as naturalistic as anything modern even if the style is dated, and the look and feel of the advanced civilisation on Mars ain't too far from the best of Art Deco. And yes, silent. But that means yer lazy imagination has to get up and, uh, imagine for a change. Worth a look.

    This is the first Russian movie I've actually really liked. It has such cool sets, costumes, and cinematography to go along with it's story! The story is overall about Russian astronauts who are planning a trip to Mars after receiving a strange message from them. Mars is also looking down on Earth, watching them, and the queen has fallen in love with the astronaut. Then there are also some kinda dull scenes about the Russian people, which I don't think the movie needed, but they didn't distract too much. If you're interested in early sci-fi movies please don't hesitate to see this one.
