The crew discovers a disabled rocket ship with a dead American aboard and live nuclear weapons in the storage area. One man goes insane because of claustrophobia as the crew goes about the completion of their mission with a comical robot. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

A very interesting film, like a journey towards hope through madness and death, with a very consistent ending. [Full review in Spanish]

It's a curio that's worthwhile seeing--especially if you're a fan of the great writer Lem.

A classic of Eastern Bloc filmmaking, it vividly summons that early thrill of discovery - and dread of the unknown - that the space programme once invoked.
