Overview
Ground control has been receiving bizarre transmissions from the three remaining residents of the Solaris space station. When cosmonaut and psychologist Kris Kelvin is sent to investigate, he too experiences the strange phenomena afflicting the Solaris crew, sending him on a voyage into he darkest recesses of his own consciousness. In SOLARIS, legendary Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky creates a brilliantly original science-fiction epic that challenges our preconceived notions of love, truth and humanity itself.
