Movie Info

ANIARA is the story of one of the many spaceships used for transporting Earth's fleeing population to their new home-planet Mars. But just as the ship leaves the destroyed Earth, she collides with space junk and is thrown off her course. The passengers slowly realize that they'll never be able to return. The protagonist, MR, runs a room where a sentient computer allows humans to experience near-spiritual memories of the Earth. As the ship drifts further into the endless void more and more passengers are in need of MRs services. Pressure builds on MR as she is the only one who can keep the growing insanity and lethal depression at bay. In Aniara's inexorable journey towards destruction there is a warning that cannot be emphasized enough. There's only one Earth. It's time to take responsibility for our actions.

  • Never establishes a coherent intellectual vantage point from which to contemplate the monumentality of the eternal void. It's a film that wants to be visionary but isn't.

  • Aniara is astonishingly ambitious, an unlikely emotional rollercoaster anchored by a beautifully-realized protagonist who manages to maintain hope and optimism without being a Pollyanna.

  • It's an intriguing premise that's employed to sporadically compelling yet predominantely underwhelming effect...

  • A thought-provoking and unsettling slow-motion disaster movie.

  • Kågerman and Lilja bring Martinson's poem to cinemas with a stark beauty both in its sci-fi production design and emotionally wrought performances.

    Sep 16, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Aniara has great world building and an interesting premise, but its runtime and pacing make this just a boring sci-fi film
