As a space pioneer the Soviet Union did his best to highlight its priority in the cinema industry. Certainly, our movies have no stunning effects of the Hollywood ones, but they impress with their human depth, with versatile expressions of characters & their behaviour. Any Soviet Sci-fi movie tells mostly about a moral choice, courage, a human dialogue with the space world. Even aliens seem to be kind, reasonable, ones who have the heart or learn to do good deeds.
Per Aspera Ad Astra (1981) is the movie of the kind. The Plot so far: A Russian scientific spaceship ‘Pushkin’ discovers an abonded alien spaceship of unknown origin. All the creatures there except one women are dead. Scientists bring her to Earth & name her Neeya. She suffers from memory loss, adapts to the Earth life & discovers that she has telekinetic powers. Then she begins to teleport to various places & back remembering terrible events: army of clones created by Professor Glan to kill. The scientists fly to this planet named Dessa to help living there & discover that it has been polluted, all the mineral resources have been depleted, so the life is only possible due to gas masks produced at a factory of evil creatures who control the planet. Neeya will do everything possible to save it, while we, human beings, should make right conclusions from this very plot.
The movie exists on Amazon Prime & bingo! I have found it in perfect quality on Youtube with English subtitles: Per Aspera Ad Astra 1981
Enjoy watching, Esteemed Readers! Take care of our planet!
