Product Description

Product Description

Superstar George Clooney turns in a stellar performance in this "brilliant sci-fi movie" (New York Daily News) from Academy Award winners Steven Soderbergh (2000 - Best Director, Traffic) and JamesCameron (1997 - Best Picture, Titanic). Aboard a lonely space station orbiting a mysterious planet, terrified crew members are experiencing a host of strange phenomena, including eerie visitors who seem all too human. And when psychologist Chris Kelvin (Clooney) arrives to investigate, he confronts a power beyond imagining that could hold the key to mankind's deepest dreams…or darkest nightmares. Co-starring Natascha McElhone and Jeremy Davies, Solaris is "mind-bending!" (Rolling Stone)

Comment vivre avec nos morts ? Si l'on songe aux Autres d'Amenabar, au Sixième sens de Shymalan ou à Sous le sable de François Ozon, on constate que c'est une thématique qui traverse le cinéma contemporain. Raviver le souvenir, survivre à l'être aimé, autant de thèmes propices aux effets poétiques dans le meilleur des cas, lacrymaux dans la plupart d'entre eux. De l'inventif et prolixe Steven Soderbergh – qui passe allègrement sans forcer son très grand talent de Ocean's Eleven à Full Frontal, en passant par Sexe, mensonges et vidéo ou Kafka –, il ne fallait s'attendre à rien de connu. Associé pour l'occasion à James Cameron pour la production, il s'empare de ces thèmes sous l'angle de la SF. Mais attention : une SF sans effets spéciaux, ou presque… Une sorte de SF dépressive, lente, douloureuse, nostalgique. Dominé par des tonalités bleutées et métalliques dans l'espace, ocres et chaleureuses sur terre, sa méditation sur la mémoire et le temps évoque le travail qu'aurait pu accomplir Alain Resnais à partir du même matériau. Plutôt qu'un remake du film réalisé par le Russe Tarkovski en 1972, le réalisateur de Traffic en propose une nouvelle adaptation et une lecture toute personnelle. Et c'est réellement bouleversant, à l'image du poème de Dylan Thomas qui irrigue en eaux profondes ce film de SF bien singulier, tenu de bout en bout par un George Clooney et une Natasha McElhone – Truman Show, Mrs. Dalloway – impeccables. --Sylvain Lefort

Format: DVD
Personally I found this to be an amazing movie, and have watched it many times. Many people do not truly understand this film, and because of this they say lots of bad things about it. This isn't a thrilling sci-fi movie, and its really not aboutsci-fi in the first place. its more of a philosophical movie, which questions our opinions in life. If you're looking for a movie that is truly fascinating, and will leave your mind in deep, deep thought, then you should love this movie. It keeps you thinking about it long after its over. In fact, I watched this movie several times before fully understanding it. If this movie seems interesting to you, I would definitely check it out. But if your mind can only be satisfied by nonstop action, look elsewhere.

For some reason, most science fiction films in the last 20 years have really been horror movies set in outer space: hideous alien monsters threaten good looking 90120 types, maybe with a token black or foreign accent character thrown in for some comic relief, yadda yadda yadda. Solaris is a welcome change of pace from all of that. It is beautifully photographed, well acted, and tells an amazing story that - gasp - makes you think instead of spoon feeding you a Hollywood ending. It's a fantastic, moving, and very compelling film. So if you want some Big Mac science fiction, get something lame like Starship Troopers - if you want some real science fiction, get Solaris.

Format: DVD
part philosophy,alternate reality,God.human existence.this movie seems
to ask a lot of is compelling for most of it's running
time,although it i found it quite deep,with very little action.I also
thought George Clooney took awhile to grow into his 1st,i
didn't find him convincing in his role,but somehow that changed
throughout the course of the movie.the problem i found with this movie
is that it for much of the time it is a deep,thought provoking movie.I
don't believe in some of the views put forth,but nevertheless,the movie
was engaging.however it drew me in, and then the ending was a cop
out,too neatly tied up,and not at all realistic.i don't mind watching a
'pure,shut off your brain' action movie,because i no what i am
getting.and if a movie stars out compelling and engaging i expect it to
end my view,this movie does not do so.i would have
given it 4,but because of the ending i am deducting 1 a
result,my vote for "Solaris" is 3*/5

Format: DVD
Visualy and auditorily stunning and artful, but a bit scarey. It's a psychological thriller as well as a love story, scarier than 2001, and it contains blood, corpses and psychosis. Worth watching though, and not gorey, but one fears to see gore at any moment in the tense bits. It also contains nudity. It leaves you thinking with a very interesting ending. Excellent performances, but not for everyone.

Beyond being extraordinarily visually appealing, this movie reached a place in me.... and lingered in my mind for days.
Imagine that the one person in your life, someone you deeply love, passes away tragically. Just because they are gone does not mean you stop making memories of them. What you remember of them is only a part of who they really are, however, and your memories grow and change shape as the years go by.
This movie explores questions of love, how love can go wrong, how it leaves a void when it's over, and mostly, how our memories of someone are not the same as who that person really was. These questions are never directly present, but hidden in the dialogue between Chris and Rheya.
Anyone looking for a Sci-Fi flick will be dissappointed at the methodical, calm pace of the movie. Someone looking for a love story will be dissappointed by the personal boundaries in Chris and Rheya's relationship. But some people, maybe those who have been touched by the death of someone who has had a profound effect on their life, may find that this film takes them to a place that others either cannot go to, or choose to avoid.

By Jon Saboe on May 10 2004

As a fan of the book, I would like to say at the outset that I don't expect movies to be like the book, but should be judged by themselvs.
That said, the book is one of my favorites, and is an exciting, mind-bending journey into the nature of consciousness and an incredible 'what-if' of a sentient planet.
This stupid movie tried to turn that into a love story.
Yes, the apparition that looks and 'thinks' she is his wife, and unaware that 'she' is dead is a psycological shock, but turning it into a romance simply had nothing to do with the book. A different story entirely.
There are so many opportunites for excitement, special effects available in the book. (Helicopter rides into transient foaming structures, historical replays of previous expiditions, etc.)
I often envisioned an exciting dramatic movie--without losing any of the intellect. I also was very excited about this movie until I had to found myself nodding off--something I NEVER do in a movie.
If you are interested in a good movie adaptation, check out the original directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. There is an excellent DVD produced by Criterion Collection. (Just skip the boring highway scene in the beginning, and you have a great movie.)
Better still--read the book-- two or three times. It's well worth it!
