It's a slight, charming, thoughtful movie; one that can be recommended to fallen idealists of every persuasion.

Cosmonaut is a slice-of-life film from a time and place now lost.

Jam! Movies

A wry, sensitive coming-of-age comedy set against a very specific historical backdrop.

Has its charms, including an enticing, Almodóvarian palette.

Audience Reviews for Cosmonauta

An amusing tale of growing up...as a Soviet supporter in cold war Italy. Genuinely funny and touching.
