Solaris Movie Synopsis
Dr. Chris Kelvin (Clooney) is asked to investigate the unexplained behavior of a small group of scientists aboard the space station Prometheus, who have cut off all communication with Earth after studying the planet Solaris.
Kelvin undertakes the journey after watching a communiqué from his close friend Gibarian (Tukur), the mission's commander, who seeks Kelvin's
help for reasons Gibarian is unwilling -- or unable -- to explain. Keenly aware that his opinion will decide the fate of the orbital station, Kelvin is shocked by what he finds upon his arrival... and becomes entrapped in Solaris' mysteries. Solaris, somehow, presents him with a second chance at love -- to change the course of a past relationship that has caused him overwhelming guilt and remorse. But can he really revisit and alter his past? Or is he fated to repeat its mistakes?
Adapted from the classic science-fiction novel by Stanislaw Lem.
I like intelligent, thought provoking movies. I really do!! They're pretty much the only movies I like. The one I watched just before Solaris was "Quest for Fire" - which was awesome. Very thought provoking and well done.
However - Solars was just horrible. The only thoughts this movie provoked were:
a). Why on Earth did I rent this movie?
b). I'd kill myself, but I'm afraid I'll "come back" and after to start over at the beginning of this stupid movie".
c). Even if you sleep during this movie, it will not be good sleep and your time will still be wasted.
Read this! This movie is wonderful..plain and simple. If you dislike thinking for yourself, discussing this movie over dinner afterwards, or marvelling at the possibilites a movie like this has to offer, don`t watch it. Go rent Armageddon, order a pizza, and relax. But if you want a brain-teasing, feel-good, guy and/or chick-flick..watch this movie. I watched it with my brother and my room-mate, then again with my girlfriend. We were explaining little details to each other until we were blue in the face! I`m not normally a big George Clooney fan, but he played the part of a non-nonsense, "I-do-not-have-time-for-this-crap" Dr., who onl
Very good movie. The possiblities for interperetations are endless. It can be almost said the move means to you what life means to you. It is a very well crafted thinking movie, and if you are blessed with an open mind and a healthy dose of patience, this movie will stay with you forever.
