Movie Info

Set against the backdrop of the Soviet Union's first satellite launch, director Alexei Uchitel's quiet drama tells the tale of a cook and amateur boxer living in a small port town in the U.S.S.R. who dreams of better things to come. Konyok (Yevgeny Mironov) is a simple man with a simple outlook on life. As he and his waitress girlfriend Lara (Irina Pegova) closely follow the developments of the newly launched satellite, Konyok makes the acquaintance of Gherman (Yevgeny Tsyganov), a former political prisoner turned amateur boxer with an outsider attitude and a deep-rooted desire to defect to the West. Though Konyok and Gherman are two vastly different men, their mutual desire to explore a life outside of the confining borders of the motherland bind the unlikely pair as they ponder the infinite possibilities of an uncertain future. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Unfussy but accurate period detailing and skillful perfs buoy up languorous love quadrangle story.

Oct 6, 2005

Confusing and confused though it may be, Kosmos Kak Predchuvstvie has surprising emotional range, and [director Alexei] Uchitel displays a Hollywood-like fluency in mixing a variety of disparate camera styles.

Didn't really do too much for me.
